Education. Income. Health. The building blocks of a successful life.

Advancing the Common Good

United Way of Lea County is the primary resource for giving, volunteering and advocating for our community.  We strive to advance the common good by affecting lasting positive improvement in the lives of the people of southeast New Mexico.

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

That is why United Way of Lea County's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
  • Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  • Health – Improving People’s Health

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.

We do not do this alone. With our partner agencies we Succeed.
