Our Work

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.  We stand for helping, hopefulness, and optimism.   We create, invest in, and facilitate partnerships to effect maximum community impact. We address critical community needs.  That’s why the Greater Valdosta United Ways’ work is focused on the building blocks for a good life: Education, Income, and Health.

The United Way has adopted three Community Goals that keep education, income, and health in mind, while providing the sharpened focus necessary for creating the kind of strategic investments and actions that can make a bigger difference in the lives of our community members.  We can improve lives by activating the caring power of the community to achieve those goals that will create lasting changes in community conditions.

Education- Assure children and youth have the support and experiences needed for a successful life and career.

Income- Increase the number of financially stable households.

Health- Improve and sustain the community's overall health and wellness
