Erie Together Partners

Erie Together's initiative began in 2009 through a partnership of the Greater Erie Community Action Committee (GECAC)Mercyhurst University, and United Way of Erie County. These three organizations, listed below, came together in response to in-depth local research regarding the prevalence and impact of poverty in our community.
