Our Work

Advancing the Common Good

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life with food, shelter in times of emergencies, health care, child care, and care for the elderly.

That’s why Greater Ennis United Way's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Kids – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
  • Food & Shelter – Providing Food for the Hungry and Shelter in Times of Emergencies
  • Health – Improving People’s Health
  • Elderly – Providing a safe home away from home place for the Senior Citizens of our community to have social contact with others their age, receive nutritional hot meals and food for the needy.

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 is safe, families have adequate food, senior citizens are taken care of and when people are healthy.

Greater Ennis 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.
