Community Impact

What is Community Impact?

  • Improving the lives of all people affected by the community’s issues – not just clients of programs funded by United Way.
  • Pinpointing the root causes of problems that threaten our community and developing strategies and partnerships to change them.
  • Working in a multi-faceted role with whatever partners can play a role in changing community conditions.
  • Going beyond the annual campaign to create long-term, ongoing relationships with diverse community investors.


Your United Way Creates Community Impact Through:

  • United For Impact Teen Volunteer & Leadership Training Program 
  • Community Outreach Events such as Community Day, Fall Festival, Chamber Expo, and Photos with Santa.
  • Coordinating Community Volunteer Opportunities
  • The Smart Beginnings Western Tidewater Collaboration 
  • The Family Wize Prescription Drug Discount Program
  • Local Day of Action and Day of Caring Events
