United Way believes we can achieve more together than any of us could do on our own. That’s why our board is committed to our mission of uniting people, organizations and resources to improve lives in Hall County. By fostering community partnerships, we can champion shared goals and align resources to deliver innovative, holistic solutions to our community’s most pressing issues, with a focus on coming together to break the cycle of poverty.
Whether United Way is funding others to provide services, delivering services or coordinating collaborative programs, we are working together to create a path to stability and self-sufficiency. By focusing on the building blocks of health, education, and financial stability to create pathways out of poverty, we don’t just change lives – we change what’s possible.
The purpose of the One Hall initiative is to break the cycle of poverty in Hall County by seeking to understand poverty from the perspective of our most vulnerable citizens. We know this will take a long-term commitment and we must work side-by-side with local churches and public, private and non-profit sectors to tackle the root causes of poverty in a holistic and sustainable manner. We seek to create a community-level goal that is measurable and attainable. We will study existing statistics and work directly with those experiencing poverty to develop strategies that must be understood and addressed at a high level by the community-at-large.
