United Way of Jackson County works with local partners to make individuals and families financially stable

What does that mean?

  • People earn enough to meet basic needs; food, shelter, health care, etc.
  • People earn enough to save for the future.
  • People can manage a budget and credit.
  • People can purchase an asset; housing, education, transportation, etc.

Through shared efforts in education, income, health and supports, we’re helping individuals and families succeed for a lifetime across Jackson County.

We will measure our success so you can see the direct IMPACT of your gift.
