About Us

United Way of the Coastal Bend believes that every young person should have a quality education, every family should have a decent job that pays the bills, and that every child and adult should be able to live a healthy and thriving life.

We have played an integral role in South Texas for more than 85 years. Originally a financial resource for other nonprofits, the organization has evolved into a vital asset to the Coastal Bend – collaborating with community organizations and a multitude of businesses. Because of this collaboration, we have helped tens of thousands of people living in 60 Coastal Bend communities better their lives.
