In order to create long-term change to improve the lives of children, families, and individuals, we work together with both the private and non-profit sectors to educate the public on the issues behind our 3 focus areas – Education, Income, and Health.

Whether you are speaking out to improve community conditions, volunteering, donating, learning about important community issues, or wearing your LIVE UNITED t-shirt to show support, you are helping to inspire hope and to create opportunities for a better life for West Central Texans.
