The CAUW Community Impact programs target specific needs in our community that are currently not being met. Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to fund programs that solve our community's most pressing needs in the areas of health, income, and education.

The mission of the CAUW is to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another.

What Does It Mean to LIVE UNITED?

It's a credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we as individuals think outside ourselves, we have the power to facilitate change.
When we think of others' lives as linked to our own, our compassion grows.
When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all.
We build the strength of our neighborhoods.
We bolster the health of our communities.
And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day. Get involved. Make a difference.
