United Way of Snohomish County is more than a fundraiser. We are funder, partner, convener, and catalyst for positive, lasting community change. Snohomish County has a collaborative spirit, entrepreneurship in its veins, and a drive to take care of its people. Your United Way reflects the community it serves, and we are entering the complex conversation around poverty in a more focused way. CORE: Creating Open Roads to Equity is our new, collaborative approach that fundamentally changes the way partners work together, building a system of care around families. Through our CORE Collaboratives, we support and invest in groups of community partners with a shared action plan to move families with young children out of the traps of poverty and down an open road to success.
