United Way of Gaston County

United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families can achieve their human potential through education, income stability, and healthy lives. We see a world where altruistic strangers stand with their hands and voices raised for the helpless and exploited, and their feet firmly planted in the path of the oppressor. The United Way seeks to be the steadfast leader that all can depend on in the face of any issue and the source of real solutions in an uncertain world.

Seeking to strengthen Jewish identity, the Federation serves as the facilitating force that connects generations, congregations and the unaffiliated alike.
