Advancing the Common Good - United Way Impact

 At its core, United Way of Jackson County believes people are connected and interdependent. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all.


We all win when children form healthy attachments through a loving family, when they succeed in school, graduate and make successful transitions to adult responsibilities.
