We focus on our region’s most critical issues within these areas. United Way of the River Cities supports a foundation of safety net services to ensure that individuals and families have their basic needs met.
We fight by forging partnerships, by mobilizing both human and financial resources, and by inspiring people to join us to create solutions to our community’s most pressing problems. United Way provides funding to agency programs and works collaboratively with organizations and individuals. We focus on outcomes so we know that our investment of donor dollars is making the greatest impact.
United Way of the River Cities’ community partnerships – the Cabell County Substance Abuse Prevention Partnership (CCSAPP), the Education Initiative, and the Financial Stability Partnership (FSP) – are funded by grants and United Way of the River Cities.
Agency programs that address the identified critical issues are supported through a grants process. Learn more about our Funds Distribution process. To ensure that programs are achieving their predicted outcomes and having the expected impact, agencies report semi-annually on their progress and community volunteers also conduct site visits.
United Way of the River Cities impacts our community by focusing our work on its most critical problems. Volunteers and local experts regularly review relevant data, so that we remain responsive to the biggest challenges our community faces.
We are the hand raisers.
The game changers. We know change doesn’t happen alone.
