WE FIGHT FOR MENTAL HEALTH
There is much work to be done in Knoxville to improve the mental health of our people. The United Way of Greater Knoxville is proud to work with local agencies and programs designed to provide care for those in need.
What does United Way do to help with mental health?
We help people by raising funds and supporting programs that provide mental health solutions here in Knoxville. Those programs include the Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding, Mental Health Association of East Tennessee, Peninsula and Knoxville Leadership Foundation. Although these 501(C)3 organizations also raise funds individually, the United Way is responsible for providing funding, which represents a portion of their operational budgets, allowing them to better serve those in our community in need of mental health 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 providing crucial care for people in our community suffering from mental health problems 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.
