United Way of Central Massachusetts


Real, sustainable community improvement requires changes in public policy. LIVE UNITED is not about Democrat vs. Republican; it’s about understanding our nation’s crises in education, income, and health, and coming together to solve them.

One easy way to advocate is online. Through email and social marketing sites, people who make a difference advocate for change. United Way of Central Massachusetts uses Facebook to help spread the message about important issues in your community.

Let us know what's important to you and post to our United Way of Central Massachusetts Page or our "Helping Little Learners" cause.
