Our Work

You are here

United Way for Jackson & George Counties funds 19 health and human service agencies with programs in the local community.  By giving to United Way, you are helping friends, families and neighbors in our community succeed in life and receive help when they need it most.

Everyone deserves opprtunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. That's why United Way's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life.

  • Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential

  • Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence

  • Health – Improving People’s Health

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
