WE FIGHT TO GIVE CHILDREN A CHANCE
There is much work to be done in Knoxville to improve the awareness of neonatal opioid withdrawal. The United Way of Greater Knoxville is proud to work with local agencies and programs designed to help provide care and pay medical expenses to give these children a chance.
What does United Way do to help with neonatal opioid withdrawal?
We help people by raising funds and supporting programs that provide solutions for babies born dependent on opiates here in Knoxville. Those programs include the Helen Ross McNabb Center, Metro Drug Coalition, Susannah’s House and Volunteer Ministry Center. 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 the young lives in our community in need of care.
How do I know that my donation will help babies 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 babies in our community suffering from neonatal opioid withdrawal 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 give babies born with neonatal opioid withdrawals a chance at health, and at life.
