WHO WE ARE

United Way of Caldwell County strengthens our community and creates opportunities for every citizen by developing partnerships to address our most significant challenges.
United Way works with local programs to provide resources to individuals and families in crisis today while working year-round to improve community conditions and create lasting solutions.

UNITED WAY ADVANCES THE COMMON GOOD

WE focus on protecting services vital to the immediate BASIC NEEDS of the most vulnerable members of our community; while making long term investments in HEALTH, EDUCATION, and FINANCIAL STABILITY because these are the building blocks for a good quality life.

WE believe we all WIN when a person succeeds in school and life, when a neighborhood turns around, when families have good health and people have solid jobs.

WE bring together people and organizations from across the community who bring the PASSIONEXPERTISE, and RESOURCES needed to get things accomplished.

WE invite you to be a part of the change.

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.
