United Way of Central Carolinas funds nonprofits in the Charlotte region in order to improve economic mobility, advance racial equity and ensure everyone has the opportunity to live up to their full potential.


Part of taking care of a community’s needs is providing mental health services. It is important to recognize the need for resources and offer education, support and treatment for mental health disorders. Some of the agencies focus strictly on mental health, while others offer those services as part of a larger mission.
