We are United Way. 

We help people learn, grow, aspire, and live their best lives. And we couldn’t do it without you.

United Way understands that you really want to make a difference right here in the Southern Kentucky. We want to help you do that.

Incorporated as a charitable non-profit entity in 1956, United Way of Southern Kentucky has long served a major role in the community by bringing people together to create opportunities that make a measurable difference in the quality of life for people where they live and work while adhering to a strict set of standards for financial accountability.

No other single organization has the scope, expertise and influence to bring together hundreds of businesses, human services agencies, government, private foundations and dedicated volunteers around a common vision of creative positive change to achieve long-lasting results.

Guided by the leadership of our Board of Directors, we are embarking on a bold journey: one that links solid, research-based community strategies to the resources needed to implement them. But we're all in this together - change can only happen when the entire community joins together to confront an issue.

We invite you to share the passion and be part of the change.

OUR MISSION

To be the leader in bringing together the resources to build a stronger, more caring community.

OUR VISION

A Southern Kentucky where all residents are educated, healthy and financially stable.
