United Way of Kern County creates lasting and measurable changes in Kern County by focusing on the three, key building blocks of life: Early Childhood Literacy, Financial Stability and Homeless & Hunger
We bring stakeholders together to generate philanthropy from all segments of our community, marshal resources, forge community consensus, build coalitions and partnerships. The combined result of all these is far greater than the sum of each individual component.
United Way's focus is to improve the Early Childhood Literacy, Financial Stability and End Homelessness and Hunger in Kern County by:
- Enabling everyone to give and invest the funds where they are needed the most
- Organize people and advocate to change systems on behalf of those whose voice may not otherwise be heard
- Empower everyone to volunteer and maximize their impact on the lives of others
