Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

United Way of Humphreys County is working to address to concerns and needs of Humphreys County residents and the agencies that provide direct services. We have seen decreased giving to United Way and this, in turn, impacts the funding we can provide to our partner agencies. They are seeing increasing client numbers and their expenses are increasing with the client load.

The allocations committee is comprised of dedicated, local volunteers. The funding recommendations are then approved by the local Board of Directors. Agencies that were funded for the 2017-18 year include:Imagination Library of Humphreys County, Small Steps Preschool, James Developmental Center, Helping Hands of Humphreys County, Tennessee Rehabilitation Center, McEwen Senior Citizens Center, American Red Cross of Humphreys County, Child Advocacy Center, We Care/We Help, Women Are Safe, and Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency (Meals-on-Wheels, Homemaker Program, Youth Can, Ombudsman).

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are aiming to increase charitable giving, so that we can increase the funding we provide to our important partners. We are also creating partnerships with local entities to promote our four focus areas of education, health, income, and rebuilding lives. Within these partnerships, we are striving to improve our county and the lives of our residents, by making Humphreys County a better place to live.

Our number strategy for making this happen is education. By educating the Humphreys County community on what United Way's mission is, and how critical our partner agencies' services are, we can build awareness and keep our organization in the public's eye. It's also important to keep the young adult population engaged in the United Way cause. By creating leadership opportunities for this age group, we can increase the sustainability of our organization and funding for our partners.

Our organization has a great board of directors and great volunteers. These individuals support United Way and are eager to see us prosper and meet our goals. Relationship building, networking, and community involvement are key components to our organization's success.

United Way of Humphreys County has funded nonprofit agencies for over twenty years. We have also partnered with a local company (Scepter, Inc) to promote the Tennessee Scholars Initiative, by recognizing high school seniors that take on more rigorous coursework. Our annual "Stuff the Bus" event is a partnership with Coordinated School Health to collect school supplies. These supplies are given to students that are in need.

Our next step is to build upon what we've already accomplished and begin taking on more community impact projects. We will continue partnerships with local organizations/entities to strengthen our county. We will begin reaching out to certain populations that we have not yet built strong relationships with, such as smaller businesses and young adults.
