About United Way of Greater Union County

Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities

For over 95 years, United Way of Greater Union County has been the preferred investment choice in improving the lives of children and families across Union County.  In recent years, we have made a significant impact on the lives of those we serve.  Through support and partnerships with key stakeholders, companies, individual donors, organizations at the local, state and federal level, we are helping to make Union County stronger, better. 
Founded on our pillars: education, income stability and health, we focus on Family Strengthening, taking a holistic approach to solving social issues affecting children and families.  Our Family Strengthening model ensures that everyone in Greater Union County has the necessary opportunities, relationships and networks to support the success of their family. 
Through collaborations we have created and the new partnerships we foster, together, we are helping real people overcome real struggles.
However, there is still so much to do as we get closer to the kind of community we can all be proud to live and work. Like so many nonprofit organizations, we continue to face difficulties sustaining in these ever-changing times and support from the community is vital now more than ever. 
We are determined to meet the residents where they are by creating innovative ways to provide the services they need. We know that problems remain complex, as do the solutions however, together we can make a difference.
