The United Way of Jasper County has served the people of Jasper County since the Great Depression. Thousands of people here in Jasper County are served every year – more than 12,000 to be exact. (That's 1/3 of the total county population)
The health and human service programs we fund include food assistance, homeless prevention, literacy, safe shelters, counseling, access to medical care, affordable childcare and much more. United Way outreach impacts all corners of Jasper County.
Our work often goes unseen because of the privacy associated with the programs we support but they are vital, impactful and changing lives. We cannot do it without you, our supporters.
Please give today and help us reach our $330,000 goal.
