Every day in our region we face challenges and opportunities to improve the lives of our friends, families, and neighbors. As a resident of the Northern Chautauqua Region, you may know people that have battled drug addiction, had a friend that struggled with illiteracy, and may yourself have had to overcome the challenge of obtaining affordable, quality childcare. While we recognize the amazing assets and advantages that living in our Region provide us, we too acknowledge our challenges and strive to continually improve life for all.
The United Way of Northern Chautauqua County is driven, managed, and working for people that live here, work here, and care deeply about our community, and we hope that you will join us in 2019.
In the past year we have helped to fund prevention education for more than 4,000 youth living in the area, distributed 2,000 books to elementary school children, helped facilitate hundreds of calls for help, completed tax returns which brought back more than $1,000,000 to the local economy free of fees, and much more. In addition, we have been able to touch lives in smaller, but perhaps more meaningful ways. Our Christmas Tree project linked a young man caring for children that were not his own with gifts, decorations, and food to ensure that those children had everything they needed to make their holiday bright. There is also the young man that has been a client under Chautauqua Blind’s United Way funded program that has graduated college, gained independence and launched a career.
Today, we invite you to join in our fight to improve literacy outcomes for children, to help educate our youth so they make positive decisions as they mature, to ensure that no senior is alone throughout the day that may need a little assistance, and in all the other fights we take on. A gift to the United Way is not just a donation focused on a single issue, it is an investment in a community that is living United. It is transforming the way we tackle our challenges and ensuring that we address all of our community’s most pressing issues.
