About the United Way of Southeast Missouri
The United Way of Southeast Missouri fights for the health, education and financial stability of everyone in the communities we serve: Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Scott City, Perry County and Bollinger County.
Over the years our business model has evolved from being a Community Chest offering emergency help in times of need to focusing on Community Impact. We have moved from merely collecting and distributing funds to identifying solutions and working with others to create change.
