About United Way of Southwest Alabama

At United Way of Southwest Alabama, we wake up every day on a mission to improve the quality of life where we live. We change lives by focusing on four main building blocks: Health, Education, Financial Stability, and access to life’s Basic Essentials. We fight for equitable resources for every person across Southwest Alabama. By joining our team, you join a dedicated staff focused on uniting and mobilizing resources that support a better life for all. We do this by building partnerships that raise funding and awareness for programs providing direct resources to local individuals in need.

We all benefit when our neighbors are able to access quality health care, when a child succeeds in school, when our community members have secure jobs, and when someone doesn’t have to choose between paying bills or paying for food. We rise and we fall together. With your support, we are reaching great new heights. Because United we fight. United we win.
