Changing Lives in Central Alabama

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life — a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health. Together, we can make an impact on our neighbors’ lives. United Way of Central Alabama focuses on impacting four key areas: health, education, financial stability and access to services.
