Creating Opportunities for a better life for all

When you lend a hand to one person, you influence the conditions of all benefiting everyone in the community.

A donation to United Way of Kern County is an easy and powerful way to create lasting changes for our relatives, friends, and co-workers right here in Kern County.

Your contribution is invested in the three building blocks for a good life: Childhood Literacy, Health, and Economic Resilience.

Everyone deserves opportunities for a good life, including a quality education that leads to a stable job including enough income to support a family through retirement and good health.

Let's mobilize DONORS, ADVOCATES and VOLUNTEERS & improve the lives of Kern County residents so we can all:

Learn well, Earn well, and Live well!
