Letter from Ben Moser, United Way President and CEO
UNITED FOR HEALTH ACCESS
Poor health and poverty are deeply intertwined. Unmet social needs, environmental factors, and barriers to accessing health care contribute to worse health outcomes for people with lower incomes, which often leads to difficulty obtaining health insurance, accessing primary care, or paying for medications. Limited access to healthy foods and higher instances of violences can affect health, behavior, and stress. United Way’s network of partners addresses food insecurity, helps individuals recover from trauma, and ensures access to physical and mental health care services and supports.

UNITED FOR ECONOMIC MOBILITY
The ability of an individual or family to improve their financial status can have a multi-generational, positive impact on the overall well-being of the child, family, and community.

UNITED FOR EDUCATIONAL EQUITY
A child’s education doesn’t begin or end in the classroom. United Way is focused on supporting the whole child and aims to ensure that all children have a great start in life, are supported in school and in their community, are reading on grade level, and graduate high school on time – ready for college or career.

UNITED FOR EMERGING LEADERS
Emerging Leaders United (ELU) members are the next generation’s trailblazers. Guided by passion, they dedicate their time and talents to service, education, and leadership. Emerging Leaders are an inspiring group of young people, under the age of 40, who each make annual contributions of $365 or more to their community through United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley.
This group gathers throughout the year for leadership opportunities with other changemakers. Their annual event, The Great Chatt, allows attendees to have the opportunity to meet and deepen connections with notable community leaders through small group discussion around the dinner table. Emerging Leaders United awards an annual scholarship to a graduating high school senior within our ten-county service area, making a lasting impact on students and their families. ELU is a great way to get involved with your community and network with like-minded peers.
