United Way's Focus on Health

Nurturing Healthy Families


From meeting immediate needs by providing meals to people in crisis to long-term solutions that improve accessibility to nutritious food, United Way of Northwest Georgia supports strategies and programs to ensure someone’s zip code doesn’t determine their health status.




We can all work together to improve the health of individuals and families in our community. Taking care of basic needs and investing in long-term strategies will help everyone reach their full potential. From food pantries and home-delivered meals to the elderly, ending hunger in our community is possible. Together, we can help improve individual lives and make our community stronger. United, We Make the Difference.
