When you advocate with United Way, you speak up and speak out to strengthen our community. We educate public officials, and others, on how education, income and health policies impact our community and we advocate to expand opportunities and drive systemic change. For example, our advocacy efforts led to increased childcare quality through enhanced training requirements for early childhood professionals, potentially improving early education outcomes for more than 466,000 children in our region. With the Texas legislature in session, now is the time for us to join together and make our voices heard.Sign Up for Advocacy Alerts

We connect you with volunteer opportunities, events and campaigns that matter to you—so you can make a fulfilling impact right here at home.
