LIVE UNITED DAY
To live better, we must LIVE UNITED.
Issues like homelessness and poverty are far too great for any one individual or organization to take on alone.
If donors, volunteers, businesses, governments, nonprofits, and community groups LIVE UNITED we can tackle these challenges.
Show your support by wearing Blue or a LIVE UNITED shirt on Friday, Sept. 29

“I Live United because I believe in collective impact. I have had a personal interest in helping youth who have spent much of their lives in foster care.

A holistic approach to helping these individuals gives them the support they need.”

I Live United because I know I can make a difference in the lives of others in big and small ways. We are called as neighbors to lift one another up. Plus, I’m building my legacy by demonstrating a life of giving and volunteering to my children, so they will grow up to be difference makers!
"I Live United because when people are in need, and there is hard work to be done, United Way of Denton County is there to help! When a group of Seniors presented their financial difficulties due to massive increases in their rent at a Lewisville City Council meeting, I immediately contacted United Way to find out what resources were available and how we could collaborate to find a solution. The United Way of Denton County team was instrumental in connecting the group with resources. United Way of Denton County and the City of Lewisville worked together to provide relief to assist our Seniors to alleviate the burden of increased living expenses. They are a great partner organization that I look forward to working with to find solutions for people in need in Denton County."
