United Way of the Mid-South’s mission is to improve the quality of life for Mid-Southerners by mobilizing and aligning community resources to address priority issues.

In 2016, Dr. Kenneth S. Robinson, President and CEO of United Way of the Mid-South announced the organization’s top priority is addressing Mid-South poverty.

United Way’s  work in education, financial stability, and health brings about positive changes on local poverty. We align our funding, initiatives, partnerships, and programs in ways that help more people escape poverty in our community.
