To enhance our community, United Way of Caldwell County advocates for all citizens to strive for a healthy lifestyle in our community.

The health of our citizens is a direct effect on the health of our community.   

To change the future of our community, we need to start with our youngest by setting them up for success from kindergarten to graduation and beyond.

To give our community a reliable foundation, we empower our neighbors to overcome financial hardship and increase the number of citizens that live a productive and healthy lifestyle. 

Our top priority is ensuring your contributions are invested in the best possible way to have the greatest local impact.  Programs funded by United Way dollars are required to show measurable results of their success stories in our community.
