Our Work

United Way of West Central Mississippi is a 501(c)3 nonprofit working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income and health. These are the building blocks of a good life- a quality education, enough income to support a family, and good health. By bringing together people and resources to address these issues, and by attacking their underlying causes, we hope to make lasting, fundamental change- for everyone

We are no longer satisfied with the old definitions of success. Moving forward, we will measure ourselves not just by the amount of money raised for the community, but also by the impact we and our community partners have on changing community outcomes.

We hope you will continue to follow our progress on our new journey!
