Our Impact

Education. Income. Health. The building blocks of a successful life.

United Way of Southeast Missouri 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 Community Impact Agenda 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 Southeast Missouri.

No other single organization has the scope, expertise, or influence to bring hundreds of human service agencies, government, education partners, and dedicated volunteers around a common vision of achieving long lasting results for a stronger, healthier Southeast Missouri. When you give to a specific charity, you support a cause. When you give to United Way of Southeast Missouri your gift becomes part of a collective effort to strengthen our entire community. Your gift allows you to accomplish more than you can alone or through a single charity.
