About United Way
United Way of Grayson County helps people overcome many of lifes challenges while focusing on barriers to succeed. While the definition of success can vary from one to the other, for many, it simply means finding a job, affordable childcare for low-income parents, literacy programs for under-educated adults, support and quality care for the disabled and senior citizens of our communities, and the list goes on.
United Way goes beyond addressing the immediate crisis or problems facing Grayson County by taking action to improve systems of care. They diligently work with many partners human service agencies, governments, supports, businesses, and labor to find the root causes of problems and situations that harm our community.
United Way makes a conscious effort to hear people's ideas about what matters and is the only organization that works with all segments of our community to identify human service issues and opportunities, establish common visions for a better community, and generate resources that, when leveraged together, create lasting change in the lives of people.
