United Way Thomas Jefferson Area
“United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area serves community members with the greatest need, or at the greatest risk, in ways that make our entire community a better place to live for the long term.”
This is the mission of United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area, and the result is improved lives in our community.
United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area’s Community Impact focus is on four areas:
- Successful Kids in Strong Families
- Achieving Self-Sufficiency
- Access to Health & Wellness
- Strengthening Community
United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area brings together community leaders, nonprofit organizations, volunteers and businesses to assess and focus on the most pressing needs and those at greatest risk in our community. We mobilize the resources—human, technical and financial—to attack the root causes of these needs.
Here is the most recent annual report.
