Mission:  To build a stronger Northwest Arkansas by identifying and prioritizing needs around education, income and health, then mobilizing resources to effectively meet them.

About:  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.  That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life: 

Education - Children and Youth achieve their potential),
Income - Families become financially stable and independent)
Health - People’s health and safety is improved.

Advancing the good of all is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us.  We are all connected and interdependent.  We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.  United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems.  Living united means being a part of the change.  It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.  Give.  Advocate.  Volunteer.  Live United.
