United Way of Coastal Fairfield County’s mission is:
“Together, we mobilize our communities to improve people’s lives”.
Our vision is that all at risk children in Coastal Fairfield County are successful in school and prepared for success in life.
A Collaborative Approach
Community engagement and collaboration are at the core of our efforts. We work with partners to frame conversations around critical issues to create on-the-ground solutions.
To effect long-term change, these collaborations utilize the collective impact model, a systematic approach to agreeing on the issues of concern and how they will determine success. In Bridgeport, United Way of Coastal Fairfield County fills the critical role of a backbone organization for Bridgeport Prospers and in Norwalk, UWCFC lends its expertise to Norwalk ACTS.
