United Way of Northern California offers programs and resources that help young people build better lives. We are able to provide these high quality programs due to the strong collaborations and working relationships developed over the years with school districts, governmental partners, nonprofit agencies and the private business sector. It is our goal to build a strong and stable community by preparing our youth for the future.
Every child is different; they each come with unique blessings and challenges. For the moments that mystify parents, 2-1-1 is here. We are dedicated to providing resources that connect families to information, experts, programs, services, social linkages and more. The first step in getting information is as close as a phone call or click away.
United Way of Northern California works with companies, governments, nonprofits and other organizations to address complex challenges. We are grateful to the many funding partners whose support has allowed us to build and maintain 2-1-1 Shasta and would like to extend our gratitude for all that you do. We simply could not do this work without you – Thank You!
