What is United Way of the Crossroads?

Girls with Banner

We are a local charitable organization with a broad focus on improving life in the Crossroads region of rural Texas. Everything we do is in service to our area residents in Victoria, Goliad, DeWitt, and Lavaca Counties and the City of Gonzales.

 

We partner with a wide range of organizations and individuals to help our community, together. We see people from all walks of life who want to help as volunteers or donors, and many businesses also donate their time and money. That allows us to work with the most successful local organizations to make lasting, effective, positive changes right here where we live.

 

Unlike other nonprofits who often have a very defined focus, we take a multifaceted approach to some of the biggest problems facing our society - problems like poverty, children's literacy, and lack of access to healthcare. We have the ability and expertise to pool resources and conduct research to determine where our efforts can make the biggest impact. That means when you give to United Way, you're not just helping one person...you're investing in our entire community, in the most effective and efficient way.

United Way benefits all of us by creating opportunities for everyone. Our focus is on education, financial stability and health—the building blocks for a good quality of life and a strong community.

Education

We’re doing our part to make things better today, so that tomorrow’s leaders can build on a stronger foundation. Concentrating on Childhood Success, we’re ensuring every child gets a strong start in life and is kindergarten ready.

Financial Stability

We’re working to put every person in our community on a path toward financial empowerment. That starts with access to services, job training, credit counseling and continues through money management programs.

Health

By making it easier for individuals to access substance abuse programs, receive quality health care and access nutritious foods, we’re doing what we can to help everyone get—and stay—healthy.
