A HISTORY OF CHANGE

1854 - 1963

The very beginning of our work to fund and empower direct service providers through a “Community Chest.”

1964 - 2005

Founded in 1964, United Way of Greater Los Angeles moved to Downtown Los Angeles in 1995 to symbolically confront the epicenters of poverty.

2006–Present

Focusing on L.A. County’s unique needs, we shifted our approach to combating poverty to specifically address education, housing, and financial stability.

CREATING CHANGE TOGETHER

We’re on a mission to permanently break the cycle of poverty for our most vulnerable neighbors – but we can’t do it without you. Together, we will fight poverty at its roots by focusing on long-term solutions in education, housing, and financial stability to solve the fundamental problems facing our most vulnerable neighbors in L.A. County.
