Mission and Goals

Our Mission
Improving the quality of life in Berkshire County by mobilizing resources to address community priorities and create sustainable change.

Our Goals
Our focus is on two key goals that support the collective community aspiration:  Making Berkshire County a community of hope and opportunity where every individual and family lives, works and thrives.

1.  Helping Children and Families Succeed

  • All children arrive at kindergarten ready to learn.
  • All young adults successfully transition to work, higher education or training.

2.  Promoting Financial Stability and Independence 

  • For many of us who have lived in the Berkshires for a long time, the social and economic problems may feel like they are going to be with us forever. Berkshire United Way and its partners are working to show thatís just not true. People can better their lives with the communityís help.  


    Thatís what it means to Live United.

    Give. Advocate. Volunteer.
