WE FIGHT FOR EDUCATION
Prepare children to succeed
When children succeed, our whole community succeeds. United Way is committed to helping all children reach their potential through our partner programs and initiatives that support parents and provide safe and nurturing environments that help bolster academics, build leadership skills and promote social well-being.
HOW WE HELP
READING AND LITERACY
With an eye on future success, programs like the PATCH homework assistance program and Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, the United Way supports lifetime learning and lifelong education. Education and literacy change lives and pave the way for lifetime success and a love of learning.
Scouting gives kids a chance to learn, grow and explore outside of a classroom setting and develop leadership, teamwork and volunteerism that stays with them for a lifetime. United Way knows that these are habits that make today's kids into the volunteers every community relies on, a never ending circle of giving back.
Fostering giving and growing in your community are lessons that children will carry with them into their adult lives and will guide them into becoming our future community leaders.
