Investing in futures...

By: Beth Latham, Executive Director


What would you say to an investment that could help a child succeed, stabilizes families and encourages healthy lifestyles for all? River Valley United Way is investing in the future of our community by meeting immediate needs and working to create lasting change. We achieve this by funding a vital network of solutions and mobilizing dollars, volunteers and expertise to tackle issues affecting our community.

In Pope, Johnson and Yell Counties we have a diverse population with many different needs and many different abilities. River Valley United Way is focusing our resources on local programs centered around Education, Income Stability and Health. We may all be different, but together we can unite to bring a network of solutions to our neighbors’ needs.

Our campaign goal is ambitious-to raise $600,000 in just a few short months. But together, we can achieve it and in doing so we create opportunities for a better community for all of us. Your investment stays local, in organizations across Johnson, Pope and Yell Counties. These organizations turn your investment into improved school readiness and proficiency, individuals reaching their full potential, families achieving financial stability and everyone having basic health needs met, including food, shelter, safety and independence.

We invite you to join us in creating opportunities for a better community for all of us. Together, we can accomplish more than any one person or agency could alone. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.
