Lake Area United Way Mission: Mobilizing resources to advance the economic well-being, education, and health of our community.
Lake Area United Way fights for the education, financial stability, and health of everyone in our community. Here is the impact we have made in Muskogee and Cherokee Counties.
Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and with good health.
That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:
Education - Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential Income - Promoting Financial Stability and Independence Health - Improving People’s Health
Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
