Why United Way

United Way of Central Kentucky solves complex and costly community challenges by forging partnerships and mobilizing resources to find new solutions to old problems that not one organization can address alone. Together we win by inspiring others to join the fight against our community’s most persistent problems and empowering individuals and families to reach their fullest potential. Serving Hardin, Breckinridge, Grayson, LaRue and Meade Counties, United Way of Central Kentucky invites you to change the odds for residents across our region.



Success in life begins with a quality education. And yet, millions of children and youth lack the support they need to strengthen their literacy, stay on track in school, graduate high school and find a career. With your support, we’re fighting to shift the odds so tomorrow’s leaders can build a better foundation today.


UWCK addresses the obstacles that prevent hard working families from getting ahead financially, providing the education and support needed to empower those in need to stop needing help.


When individuals are unable to meet their immediate needs, it is more difficult to focus on long-term goals. United Way recognizes that basic needs services are essential to the most vulnerable in our community and critical to getting people back on the road to self-sufficiency.
