Advancing the Common Good

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity 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.  We improve our community by:

  • Providing leadership
  • Convening partnerships
  • Developing resources and solutions

Our Focus areas:
Education
Financial Stability
Health

 

We are working to connect people to the Crossroads to assistance when and where they need it.  Our goal is to establish a single place in each community we serve where residents can go to get connected to the help they need.

Connecting Victoria

Connecting the Region

 

We are working to ensure each child in each community we serve is Kindergarten-Ready.  Our programs include:

Born Learning Trails

Series of interactive signs at existing parks and walking trails offering fun activities for children and families while they are out walking together.

Tiny Libraries

Reading nooks placed in local day cares and stocked with FREE books for children to take home and read with their families.

Dolly Parton Imagination Library

Provides every child born in the town/county in 2021 with one book per month from the time of enrollment through age 5.

United Way Kit-Builds

United Way Kit-Builds provide team-building and volunteering opportunities in one activity!  

Be a Santa for a Senior

Help us provide Holiday gifts to home-bound Senior Citizens throughout the Crossroads.

At United Way of the Crossroads, we strive for better health, education and financial stability for every person in all of our communities.  We partner with local agencies which focus on goals and successful outcomes covering education, financial stability, and health and we work together to create long-lasting changes that improve lives and create possibilities for the future.
