About United Way of Southeast Missouri
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 using the power of our network to create lasting change. We have moved from merely collecting and distributing funds to identifying solutions and working with others to change lives right here in Southeast Missouri.
What Make Us Different
We firmly believe there is no better investment than education, the foundation for success in life.
We believe a healthy region is a strong region, and our health greatly affects our ability to thrive at home, school, and work.
We connect our most vulnerable neighbors with the resources they need to lead happier, healthier lives.
We work with 30 funded partners representing 34 programs that have a tremendous impact on our community.
