The Corona-Norco United Way's mission is to support community members most in need with healthy living, educational success, and financial independence through our non-judgmental, confidential, and free programs. Our vision is to provide services, resources and opportunities to marginalized communities in order to transform their lives into a sustainable future. We pride ourselves on taking a “hands-on” humanistic approach with each and every client so that the transformation is tailored and personalized to their specific needs. We bring people, organizations, and communities together around a common cause, a common vision, and a common path forward. In our communities, we are the only nonprofit building up the cornerstones of education, financial stability and health--and the only nonprofit bringing people together from all walks of life to be a part of local solutions.
Domestic Violence Program
The Domestic Violence Program offers support to families in immediate or imminent danger of being hurt by an intimate partner or to children who are abused, neglected or have witnessed family violence regardless of sex, age, gender, lifestyle, religion, medical condition, etc. Participation in our program is open to all women, men, and their children who have been a victim of Domestic Violence and is offered in English and Spanish.

Volunteers are tremendous resource for any organization, but for nonprofits, they are they epicenter. Working without compensation to benefit those most in need is a selfless act that we at the Corona Norco United Way take very seriously. It is our goal to offer volunteer opportunities for all, including individuals, groups, one-time, short-term, long-term, on-going, and everything in between. While we hope to offer a range of in-person opportunities by Fall 2021, we are still limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
