We aren’t your typical United Way. Through our CORE Collaborative approach, United Way of Snohomish County removes barriers to help families escape the traps of poverty. We are not only a funder, but an active partner in five CORE Collaboratives—groups of nonprofit, public, and private  partners working together on shared, long-term solutions for children birth to age 8 and the adults in their lives. We catalyze, support, and invest in these Collaboratives to create more equitable systems so families in Snohomish County can live to their fullest potential regardless of race, place, and ability.
