About

The driving force behind United Way exists in the name: UNITED.

UWBCKR brings together donors, volunteers, businesses, nonprofits, faith-based, community leaders, government, experts, and those in need. Together we focus on challenges, set sound strategies and goals, and then tackle them at their roots… in a UNITED WAY.

Now we’re diving deeper to tackle the most pressing issues in Education, Income, Health and Basic Needs. Additionally, UWBCKR is committed to creating equitable opportunities and reducing racial and economic disparities.
