During these uncertain times, how can we help?

To provide leadership in uniting our community to improve people's lives and build a vital and caring community.
United Way of Greenville County's work centers on two distinct, but equally important, strategic goals:
Helping People in Need Right Now through a commitment to supporting 92 essential local programs. Need has no sense of time or place. It comes in the middle of the night or at work and it is also something with deeper roots that affects generations. Reaching out to people who have immediate, basic needs--like a homeless family needing a meal--is vital. We will never walk away from that responsibility. Supporting programs that work within critical areas -- Nurturing Children, Strengthening Families, Improving Health, Guiding Youth and Helping in Times of Crisis--is the foundation for a caring community.
Helping to Eliminate Future Needs through a commitment to addressing the underlying causes of critical problems. For instance, what are the root causes that leave a family homeless? We are committed to investing more time and resources on these bigger challenges. United Way's community priorities cover key areas that we believe can most significantly change our community long term.
Improving these issues positively impacts all of us.
