What We Do

You are here

At United Way of Coastal Fairfield County, our focus is “Changing the Odds for Children.” Families throughout Coastal Fairfield County are struggling to make ends meet.  Our goal is to get kids ready to enter kindergarten with the needed literacy skills, have them reading at grade level by the third grade and succeed in school.  We know that for children to succeed, it takes an approach that looks at the needs of families and finds ways to address them all.

Short-term responses are still sometimes necessary, so we provide support for immediate needs, while finding solutions with the community that will help stabilize familes.

Our work helps real families every day and has an economic impact on the community. The total economic value brought to Coastal Fairfield County by United Way of Coastal Fairfield County and its donors is $61,375,512.
