Is to organize through vision and leadership the capacity of people to care for one another throughout Pike County.
In 2008, United Way World Wide initiated a 10-year program designed to achieve the following goals by 2018:
- Improve education, and cut the number of high school dropouts — 1.2 million students, every year — in half.
- Help people achieve financial stability, and get 1.9 million working families — half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable — on the road to economic independence.
- Promote healthy lives, and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors.
These goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths — a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity — we can achieve them.
Our Diversity Statement
United Way of Pike County will continually strive to be a model of diversity and inclusion. Our Board of Trustees, staff, and volunteers must reflect the many faces, and walks of life, which proudly make up our nation. Together we genuinely demonstrate the principles of diversity and inclusion which enrich our community. We recognize structural racism has contributed to the persistent disparities which we seek to dismantle. The United way of Pike County opposes all forms of racism.
Valuing diversity includes respecting and appreciating each person’s race, religion, gender, nationality, language differences, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical status and the perspectives of each individual shaped by their nation, culture, and experiences. Inclusion and diversity brings together people with unique individual backgrounds to collectively and more effectively address the issues facing our communities.
It is our aim, therefore, that United Way of Pike County’s partners, strategies, and investments reflect these core values, Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of what it means to live united and advance the common good; to be a diverse and inclusive system is fundamental to achieving our mission and goals in education, income, health, and home.
