UNION COUNTY IS UNITED

United Way of Central Carolinas advances economic mobility and racial equity through collective efforts and community-wide donations.

SUPPORTING THE MISSION IN UNION COUNTY

In January 2022, a diverse committee of Union County community members was created to identify areas of need where United Way funding can make the greatest impact in the Union County community. Working together, our mission continues to focus on strengthening the overall health and well-being of Union County citizens. We will focus our efforts in three major areas: Economic Stability and Access to Quality Education and Healthcare.

ECONOMIC STABILITY


Our focus in this impact area is housing stability and food security. Many of our Union County citizens continue to struggle with meeting housing and food needs. Housing and food assistant services will enable individuals and families to stay in their homes, provide access to safe housing during times of crisis, and provide access to nutritious foods.


Another major focus is the support of the Intellectual Developmental Disability (I/DD) community. The lack of vocational services and after-school programs for these youth and young adults affect both the individuals and their families in social, mental and economic ways. This work crosses several of our services areas.

ACCESS TO QUALITY EDUCATION


Our focus in this impact area is on childhood literacy and mentoring programs. Early language interactions, quality childcare, and intervention resources encourage higher literacy rates and academic success for our children in their early academic years, providing a strong foundation for continued learning and success.


Supporting economically disadvantaged, at-risk youth, through mentor programs can help our middle and high school students prepare for their future. Mentor programs can increase academic achievements, improve mental health, increase confidence, and help students identify careers and college pathways.

ACCESS TO QUALITY HEALTHCARE


To promote the wellness of the Union County area, we will fund access to affordable and quality healthcare. By giving this community better access to medical treatment and resources, they can experience a higher quality of life, both physically and mentally.

HOW YOU CAN LIVE UNITED

United Way invites you to be part of this meaningful work in Union County by helping meet the basic needs of our neighbors during times of crises and providing inclusive talent development services for our children, youth, and the I/DD community.

Every donation, big or small, contributes to the life changing efforts made by United Way. When you give, you are investing in stronger communities and the enrichment of lives. Any donation amount is appreciated and will improve the economic stability and access to education and healthcare in the Union County area.
