Improving Lives in Our Community

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 good health.

Community Solutions is the name of our work and is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Education – Helping Children, Youth, and Adults Achieve Their Highest Potential
  • Health – Improving People’s Health and Access to Healthcare
  • Safety – Keeping People Safe From Abuse, Neglect, Violence, and Crime
  • Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence for Individuals and Families

United Way is different in that it is not just about one cause, but rather creating better outcomes. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when people are healthy, when families are safe and financially stable. United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties leads three community wide initiatives and funds 28 local programs through 17 agencies.

United Way’s goal is to improve lives in our community. It takes everyone across the community working together to create a brighter future. You can Give. You can Advocate. You can Volunteer. That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.
