Community Impact

Making a Difference

Our United Ways across the state achieve community impact by:

  • advocating on public policy issues; 
  • developing initiatives to address specific problems in our communities; 
  • convening and participating in task forces and coalitions; and
  • working with traditional and nontraditional partners including business, education, government, health and human service providers, media, community members, faith-based providers, and neighborhood organizations.

We focus on Education, Income and Health as the key elements to improving the quality of life in Tennessee.
