United Way of the Greenbrier Valley is working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income, and health. These are the building blocks for a good life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. Our goal is to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place.
We invite you to be a part of this initiative. We invite you to “Live United.” By working together, we believe we can inspire hope, create opportunities, and change lives within our local communities. This is what it means to “Live United.”
