Our Mission- The mission of United Way of Stephens County is to improve our community's quality of life by uniting resources in support of programs dedicated to helping people.
Building on a solid foundation- United Way of Stephens County was founded in 1954 by T.H. McCasland, Sr. and Eric Murray. Consolidated fund raising efforts supported six local agencies and helped to eliminate multiple fundraising efforts.
Impacting local lives- United Way agencies touched the lives of over 18,000
residents in Stephens County in 2009.
Working together as a community- United Way of Stephens County improves the quality of the lives of our citizens by bringing resources and initiatives like Heartline 211 and Smart Start to our community. We take part in solving difficult issues in our community and are one of the leaders in making our back yard the best possible place to live and raise a family. We can only do this with your support.
Driven by local leadership- United Way of Stephens County is governed and led by local citizen volunteers. Our board consists of 15 directors elected by our donors and member agencies. Other volunteer members appointed to the board are the Campaign Chair, Communications Chair and Smart Start Coalition Chair.
