Community COMMUNITY-STRENGTHENING: BUILDING CAPACITY TO ADVANCE THE COMMON GOOD

We have a shared responsibility to promote the common good by ensuring the state has a well-managed and resourced network of community services that protect and invest in our state’s most vital resource: our people.

To do this, United Way will:
  • Advocate for a state budget that adequately funds strategic investments in Illinois’ health and human services
  • Promote fair, efficient and transparent contracting practices between service providers and government funders.
  • Support efforts to reduce unnecessary state administrative burdens on human service providers and their programs.
  • Enhance community resources that ensure a seamless infrastructure of health and human service support those in need.
