Guided by research and data, United Way is focused on and investing in services that support those who are employed, but struggling monthly to afford basic necessities, and families living with income below the Federal Poverty Level.


The single investment process was based on data-driven, objective criteria looking at the type of services provided and the ability to serve the client population (ALICE and BIPOC – Black, Indigenous and People of Color) in key regions identified from data as high areas of need.


Investment categories: financial stability, early education and youth development, health care, escape from violence, and basic needs.


So, we can begin to make headway against racism and underrepresentation. All of our investments in services and agencies are evaluated on how they incorporate diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging into policies, practices, and service delivery.


Promoting inclusiveness and reach, United Way will open the funding application process to Greater Houston area nonprofits providing services across Fort Bend, Harris, Montgomery, and Waller counties in investment categories that aspire to be part of the Integrated Client Journey in 2024.
