About the United for Racial Equity and Healing Fund

The United for Racial Equity and Healing Fund supports United Way of Greater Atlanta’s work to improve areas of low and very-low child well-being so children, families and communities can thrive. Ending disparities is the guidepost for United Way of Greater Atlanta’s Child Well-Being Agenda, which focuses on addressing the systemic issues that put Greater Atlanta at the bottom of the list of U.S. cities in terms of opportunity and mobility for low-income children and make a child’s zip code of birth their destiny. For two years running, Bloomberg has called Atlanta “the capital of inequality.” The purpose of the Fund is to reduce and prevent racial inequities across systems that impact child well-being (education, health, housing and economic stability) across the Greater Atlanta region.
