The mission of United Way of Hall County (UWHC) is to unite people, organizations and resources to improve lives in Hall County. This is accomplished by encouraging all facets of the community to give, advocate and volunteer.
For over 70 years, United Way of Hall County has focused on issues that are important and vital to every resident having the tools they need to build a good life. UWHC believes education, financial stability and health are the building blocks of a good life. In 2018, the United Way of Hall County board made the decision to focus on creating pathways out of poverty for the 54% of our residents that are financially burdened and lacking needed resources for a good life.
One method UWHC utilizes to improve lives and create pathways out of poverty is investing financial resources in programs, collaborative efforts and initiatives that serve Hall County residents and address board-approved community investment priorities.

United Way of Hall County recently launched the Community Game Plan (Collective Impact Framework) that will guide our partnerships around funding, advocacy, collaboration and education. Click here to download a copy of our Community Game Plan.
We are seeking partners to address the below areas of need. If your organization has a solution that addresses one of the challenges listed below we would like to work with you.
UWHC cannot achieve its mission of improving lives alone. We believe that through collaboration with community resources working toward a common goal, we can achieve more than any single organization can alone. As such, we seek partners that share that commitment.
United Way of Hall County will solicit the participation of the very best potential partners to achieve its goals within the areas of education, financial stability and health specifically in relation to creating pathway out of poverty.
