United Way isn't about short-term charity. It's about lasting change. We look at the big picture-what resources are lacking down to food, shelter and health needs and how can we address that to help people become successfull and build a stronger community.
In order to address root causes of critical health and human service needs, one must start with data. Data is needed to be able to identify, develop and track successful approaches that result in long-lasting change that has impact on large numbers of people. United Way is in the process of identifying countywide data related to Education, Income and Health. As more information becomes available, we will continue to update you.
