About Us

 

TOGETHER,

WE SUPPORT A VISION OF A STRONG, SUPPORTIVE, SAFE AND HEALTHIER COMMUNITY

 

UNITED WAY OF JOHNSON & WASHINGTON COUNTIES (UWJWC) 

EMBODIES THE UNITED WAY OUR COMMUNITIES COME TOGETHER TO

CREATE SOCIAL CHANGE AND IMPROVE LIVES.

UNITED WAY PARTNERS WITH: 

DONORS, NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS,

PUBLIC POLICY MAKERS

AT THE LOCAL, STATE & NATIONAL LEVEL, 

COMMUNITY LEADERS AND AREA BUSINESSES

TO ADDRESS THE CHALLENGES WE FACE AS A COMMUNITY. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Building on our knowledge, credibility and historic leadership of service,

our United Way is helping to lead a community effort that will

create both stronger and more comprehensive support systems

in the priority areas of education, income and health – ensuring that:

 

- CHILDREN HAVE THE SUPPORT SYSTEMS AND SERVICES TO SUCCEED IN SCHOOL

- INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES ARE FINANCIALLY STABLE AND SELF-SUFFICIENT

- ALL HAVE ACCESS TO EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL CARE

AND THE ABILITY TO MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE KNOW THAT LARGE-SCALE PROBLEMS

CANNOT BE SOLVED BY A SINGLE ORGANIZATION.

FINDING SOLUTIONS TO THESE CHALLENGES REQUIRES

THE COORDINATED EFFORT OF OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY.  

UWJWC PROVIDES THE LEADERSHIP

AS THE CONVENER AND THE CATALYST

TO HELP OUR PARTNERS IN OUR COMMUNITIES

MAKE LASTING CHANGE TO IMPROVE LIVES.
