WE FIGHT FOR ACCESSIBILITY
There is much work to be done in Knoxville to improve accessibility. The United Way of Greater Knoxville is proud to work with local agencies and programs that make our community accessible for all.
What does United Way do to help with disabilities?
We help people by raising funds and supporting programs that provide local solutions here in Knoxville. Those programs include The Arc Knox County, the Cerebral Palsy Center, East Tennessee Technology Access Center and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Although these 501(C)3 organizations also raise funds individually, the United Way is responsible for providing funding, which represents a significant portion of their operational budgets, allowing them to better serve those in our community in need of disabilities services.
How do I know that my donation will help people in Knoxville?
United Way of Greater Knoxville raises money to meet the needs of our community. The money that is raised here, stays here, in Knoxville.
How can I help?
If you would like to assist in making Knoxville accessible for the disabled and able bodied alike and further the cause of the United Way, you can either DONATE or VOLUNTEER. Any donation of any size is helpful, and even the smallest donations add up. And if you’re more interested in providing your time, the United Way is always in need of caring individuals to help us fulfill our mission.
United Way is funding programs that make a positive impact on accessibility.
We fight for self-sufficiency. Will you?
