Erie Together – Learn, Work, Thrive.
ERIE TOGETHER is a movement of hundreds of local individuals and organizations working together in very strategic ways to make the Erie region a community of opportunity where everyone can learn, work and thrive.
The initiative was launched in 2009 through a partnership of the Greater Erie Community Action Committee (GECAC), Mercyhurst University, and United Way of Erie County. These three organizations came together in response to in-depth local research regarding the prevalence and impact of poverty in our community. Erie Together’s role is to help better align local resources to prevent and reduce poverty, elevate prosperity, and strengthen families, our community and the local economy.
