Our Impact

Jackson County United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our community.  We are working toward the following long-term community goals of self-sufficiency for individuals and families in Jackson County, in part by funding certified partners and programs which meet the outcomes we have identified with each goal.

Education:
Community Goal: Every person is supported and grows into a successful adult.
Ensuring that all children in our community enter adulthood with the self-sufficiency and life skills they need to succeed is a crucial investment in the future – both for individuals and the community as a whole.

Health:
Community Goal: Every person engages in healthy relationships and a healthy lifestyle.
One’s health impacts employment and productivity, academic achievement and financial stability. It is critical to invest in the health of all people in our county to lead healthy and productive lives and be an active, contributing members of society.

Financial Stability:
Community Goal: All families and individuals are economically stable and resilient.
Financial stability not only contributes to an individual and families’ economic stability but also to overall community well-being.
