Our Work

Advancing the Common Good in Northeast Arkansas

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That’s why our  work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Education – Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
  • Income – Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  • Health – Improving People’s Health
    • Arkansas 211: Get Help. Get Connected. Whether you want to give or get help, Arkansas 211 is the free, confidential, 24-hour-a day, multilingual way to connect individuals and families to critical local resources. These include food, shelter, rental assistance, childcare, and more. Arkansas 211 helps callers navigate their situation and then matches them with the best and closest resources in their community.

In our eight and a half-county community we are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way offers an opportunity for donors to ‘unite’ under one umbrella in order to affect change and improve lives in the community.  LIVE UNITED!
