Education

Education is a cornerstone for success in school, work and life. Setting children on the path to success begins with early intervention, and then, through high-quality education, students can graduate high school prepared for college & career. United Way of Kershaw County focuses on long-term solutions and addressing opportunity gaps throughout the cradle-to-career pipeline in order to keep kids on track to graduating prepared for success.

Financial Stability

Through our New Day program, United Way of Kershaw County is working towards eliminating homelessness by addressing the needs of our community's homeless population. New Day's mission is to "Fill gaps in homeless housing and services as we identify them by working in harmony with community agencies, local, state and federal governments, churches, individuals and other ministries."

The United Way of Kershaw County is a local organization that depends on volunteers to help build capacity so that we can extend our reach in the community. Volunteers are a vital component in the work that goes on here, without them, we could never see the impact our partner agencies and our own initiatives make in this community every day. The United Way of Kershaw County is a volunteer led organization. We have an all-volunteer board of directors comprised of community leaders from across Kershaw County, from bankers, lawyers, housewives, pastors, educators, and retired individuals giving their time to make our organization function.
