Education. Income. Health. The building blocks of a successful life.
United Way believes that everyone is entitled to a quality education, a family- sustaining income and good health. And we’re not alone. Education, Income and Health are also the indicators by which the United Nations measures community development worldwide.
Through our Impact Fund, we work to make sure people get the support services they need right now while simultaneously addressing the root causes of key issues – that’s how we create true community impact. We know that by improving education for all children, we’re setting them on the path to high school graduation and college success. We know that those children will go on to hold skilled jobs and be financially equipped to support their families. We know that good health is directly linked to a successful life. Most importantly, we realize that when we improve education, income and health at a community level, we all benefit. That’s what LIVING UNITED looks like in Knox County Illinois.
It's a credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.
