United Neighborhoods


United Way has always been about neighbors helping neighbors.


From helping individuals and families become financially stable and find affordable housing, to preparing children to enter school ready to learn and read, the needs of communities in our region are many and varied.


United Neighborhoods launched in 2017 with a $2.4 million commitment over three years into the Renaissance and Grier Heights neighborhoods in Charlotte.


Working with a lead partner in each community, United Way funds and guides the work toward achieving its collective goal of building thriving communities where families want to live.


United Neighborhoods expands in 2018 with the addition of six Block Building Grants for neighborhoods including Brookhill, Hidden Valley, Lakewood, Smithville, West Boulevard Corridor and an effort focused on Freedom Drive.


Help us continue to change the odds for individuals and families living in our region’s most under-resourced neighborhoods by donating to United Way or volunteering through our Hands On Charlotte team.
