Promoting Self-Sufficiency by improving knowledge and skills


United Way of Buffalo & Erie County is fighting to increase financial stability in this community. We work to identify initiatives that promote employment and workforce development, provide financial education, and ease the burden of tax season by offering free tax preparation.
