Two acts from the New Deal that still exist and which did the things you mention are the Social Security Act and the Tennessee Valley Authority.

The Social Security Act made it much less likely that old people would live in poverty -- it gave them pensions.  This makes society more just because people who work all their lives are not being left in poverty.  It makes the economy more stable because those people will always have money to spend to keep demand for products up.

The TVA built dams for electricity.  This helped the economy by bringing cheap power to the area (so companies would locate there).  And it made a more equitable society by letting more people have electricity (which lots of people didn't have back then).

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation would be one, as it provided insurance for bank deposits and restored permanent confidence in the banking system, thus giving us a more stable economy.

The Securities and Exchange Commission did so also, regulating the stock market, limiting margin buying and getting rid of the boom and bust nervousness that caused the original stock market crash.

Lastly, the Social Security Act gave retirement payments to every American at age 65, and provided aid to orphans and the physically impaired.  This created a more equitable society.

All three of these programs are still in existence today.
