United Way Agencies

So let's assume you don't know what the United Way does. 

You know that it exists.  You know that it helps people.  You've seen the  commercials that are all over NFL games on Sundays.

But what does United Way do for Houston?  And what can it do for you?

Read on...

Below is a comprehensive list of agencies that our local United Way supports.  In some cases, our United Way contributes a significant portion of the organization's budget.  In other cases, it contributes a smaller, but no less vital, amount to an organization's programs. 

In Legacy's case, United Way has historically contributed to Legacy's HIV/STD education, testing, and counseling, as well as the Frost Eye Clinic.

Take a look at this loooooooong list.  Do you see any organizations you've used?  Any you've suggested other people check out? 

Chances are good your life has been improved thanks to the United Way's efforts to do something amazing in the Houston community.
