We aren’t your typical United Way. CORE: Creating Open Roads to Equity is a collaborative approach of United Way of Snohomish County that removes barriers to help families escape the traps of poverty. We are not only a funder, but an active partner in five CORE Collaborativesgroups of cross-sector partners focused on shared, long-term solutions for families struggling to get by. Unlike other approaches, CORE gives voice to the whole family, making it easier for children birth to age 8 and the adults in their lives to find success together.
