The United Way of Northwest Arkansas' mission is "Uniting our communities to empower people and improve lives". We execute this mission through our impact in the areas of Education, Income Healh and Safety Net. We fund more than 60 programs throughout Northwest Arkansas that work to help us meet our mission.
Since 2013 we've been engaged in a strategic planning process to identify areas of need within our community and have selected an issue for which we believe public, private, and government partners can collectively influence meaningful change with measurable results. The issue? Children livng in poverty.
Nearly a quarter of children in Northwest Arkansas under the age of 18 live in poverty. That is 26,000 children. The implications of 1 in 4 children growing up in poverty in our community are significant and require our collective attention.
Our bold goal is to provide a pathway out of poverty for every child in Northwest Arkansas. Join us!
