Community Impact

Basic Needs,  Education, Health & Income/Family Stability –  The building blocks of a successful life.

United Way of the Lowcountry (UWLC) believes that everyone is entitled to basic needs, a quality education, a family- sustaining income and good health. And we’re not alone. Our focus on these priority areas were reinforced by the feedback we received from YOU, the community, through our open community conversations.

Through our funding, we work to ensure sure people get the support services they need right now, while simultaneously addressing the root causes of key issues – that’s how we create true community impact.  We know that by improving education for all children, we’re setting them on the path to high school graduation and college success. We know that those children will go on to hold skilled jobs and be financially equipped to support their families.  We know that good health is directly linked to a successful life.

Most importantly, we realize that when we make sure a family’s basic needs are met, and when we improve education, income and health at a community level, we all benefit.
