Our Region

United Way is grounded in the belief that understanding the unique needs of each neighborhood is vital — not just for building stronger individuals and families — but for building stronger communities. The United Way of Metro Chicago regional network works cross-collaboratively within a six-county footprint to support health, education, financial stability and safety net programs in the city of Chicago, the western suburbs, north-northwest suburbs and south-southwest suburbs. This collaboration gives United Way the regional arms and on-the-ground resources to bring the right partners together to create action-based solutions that address community challenges.
