The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities to advance the common good.
The vision for this new entity is to improve people's lives and strengthen communities across the region by ensuring all citizens have access to the basic building blocks of a good life -- EDUCATION, INCOME, and financial stability and HEALTH.
To do this we will:
Energize and inspire people to make a difference
Analyze and understand the unique needs of our communities
Craft agendas to address these needs within and across our communities
Build coalitions around these agendas
Increase investments in these agendas by expanding and diversifying our own development efforts and supporting those of others
Measure, communicate, and learn from the impact of our efforts
