What We Do


United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties mobilizes donors, volunteers and community partners to improve the lives of youth and their families.


Every child is successful, every family is financially stable, and every community we serve is stronger.


To best serve Monmouth and Ocean counties in a compassionate and caring manner, we base our actions and decisions on the following core values:

Community-Focused:  We are leaders who identify the unmet needs of our community and collaborate with volunteers and partners to work to make a substantial difference in these areas.

Accountable:  We are reliable and set goals for ourselves and our partners in order to have a measurable impact.

Trustworthy:  We conduct ourselves with the utmost regard for integrity, fairness, ethics and respect for one another.

Inclusive:  We are committed to involving diverse ideas and perspectives to improve our ability to understand community needs, strengths and resources.
