Who Will Tackle The Problems Most Shy Away From? 


United Way Galveston County Mainland improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of our communities to advance the common good.  Side-by-side—United—we tackle the problems people don’t talk about at cocktail parties. Together, we tackle the problems most people shy away from by forging unlikely partnerships… by finding new solutions to old problems… by mobilizing the best resources. And, by inspiring individuals like you to join us in the fight against our community’s most daunting social crises.

You see, we don’t just fight against our communities’ toughest challenges… we fight for the preschooler who doesn’t have books, for the teenager unsure of where his next meal will come from, for the senior who can’t afford her medications and for the domestic violence survivor who can’t face another day. We fight for those who need a voice. We fight for all those whose names we’ll never know.
