What We Do

United Way of Hays & Caldwell Counties, together with our community partners, advances the common good by investing in and developing programs that address critical needs in education, income/financial stability and health in Hays and Caldwell Counties. These are the building blocks of a good life: a quality education, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. By bringing together people and resources to address these issues, and by attacking their underlying causes, we hope to make lasting, fundamental change-for everyone.
