WHO YOU HELP

UNITED FOR CHILDREN

We help children succeed in school and life.

We believe that with the right resources and support, children can grow into whoever they want to be. Every child deserves a bright future. That’s why our programs prepare children and youth for success in school and beyond.

In Allegheny County alone, almost 250,000 children and teens are currently struggling. We strive to provide social and academic support for students in Pittsburgh and throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania from the very start by:

  • Preparing children to enter kindergarten with healthy habits and ready to learn
  • Promoting school successes
  • Helping youth establish caring and healthy relationships through strong mentors, coaches, and youth programming leaders
  • Increasing the quality of out-of-school time programs

Help youth envision a path towards a successful future.
