THE NEEDIdentifying where our community needs us most.
SERVING THE GREATEST NEED
Nearly half of Bay County is struggling to meet their basic needs. In our community, 29% of people live in poverty while an additional 16% are in the ALICE population. Through community conversations and research, the most critical priority areas for the United Way have been identified as health, financial stability and education with specific goals in each. Every day, we fight to improve the lives of all residents through direct programming and our impact partner's programs. We identify gaps in services, assess the most pressing needs and work together with other community leaders to make an impact and lift our residents into a life of self sustainability.
Together we fight. Together we win.
