Community Impact- What we do

Community Impact

Our goal is to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place.  United Way of Laurens County partners with like-minded agencies to fund over 20 programs focused on Financial Stability, & Emergency Relief.  

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  •     Financial Stability - Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  •    Emergency Relief- Helping families or individuals in unexpected crisis with immediate assistance today to help them start building a new tomorrow.

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change.

Each year, local service agencies petition United Way of Laurens County for funds through a Community Impact grants process.

It isn't enough that we raise money each year and grant it to 9 very worthy agencies, we also believe we should empower the community to rally around itself to make a difference. To that end, we offer key volunteer opportunities through our Bags of Love, Day of Caring and School Supplies Drive programs.

It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
