Advancing the common good means creating opportunities for a better life for everyone in our seven-county area: Clark, Garland, Hot Spring, Montgomery, Pike, Polk, and Saline counties. Because when we reach out to one, we improve the condition of all.

We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable and when people are in good health. These results and changes have benefits that ripple out to the community as a whole.

Our goal is to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place. Our success is measured, not only in dollars raised, but also in lives improved and goals achieved.

Much more than a fund-raising organization, United Way directs resources toward our communities’ most pressing health and human service issues and serves as a vital link between those who can help and those who need help.

The work of our 18 partner agencies/19 programs is aligned with the goals of our three impact areas.

  • Education
  • Financial Stability
  • Health & Safety
