At United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey in Camden County, we envision a community where everyone has the opportunity for a better life. We mobilize the caring power of the community and advance the common good by recruiting the people and organizations who bring the passion, expertise and resources to get things done. By investing resources into the building blocks of a good quality of life – Education, Income and Health – we create opportunities for our friends and neighbors to achieve a better life.

LIVE UNITED. It’s a command. To give. To advocate. To Volunteer. Because United we stand. United we elevate. United we preserve. United we move through, above and beyond.
