Our Mission & Vision
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. United Way fills the critical role of a backbone organization.
