Education

Helping children achieve their potential...

When a child succeeds in school, everyone wins. That is why the United Way works with local organizations to achieve school readiness, academic achievement, and productive and engaged young adults. We work with programs that provide good role models, mentor-ship, education, inclusion, and healthy activities for children in Franklin County so that our children can gain the confidence and skill to be future leaders in our community.

Health

Improving people’s health...

Prevention can be better than finding a cure. The United Way values advancing the common good by supporting programs to help people stay healthy. Programs focus on access to care, improving health, physical activity, nutrition, and emotional health. Our goal is to break attitudes and patterns that disrupt the health of our community and promote healthy families.

Income

Promoting financial stability and independence....

United Way of Franklin County helps build self sufficiency by providing access to child care and assistance, as well as adult and family literacy programs. We also support programs that provide access to work and activity for people with barriers to employment so that they and their families can reach their potential. Our goal is to help families become financially stable and build resources.
