Since 1928, United Way of Fort Smith Area has provided change in our area. We mobilize our community in ways that no single agency, individual, or government can to enhance the ability of people to care for one another.
United Way addresses the needs important to people who live and work in Crawford, Franklin, LeFlore, Logan, Sebastian and Sequoyah counties.
We do this by:
- Bringing the community together to address critical issues such as early learning and hunger.
- Investing in programs that provide the education, childcare, shelter and food that people need to be successful.
- Encouraging people to contribute money and time to improve the communities we serve.
Mission – To improve lives by connecting people and resources in our six-county area.
Vision – To be a community problem solver for our six-county area.
A local volunteer board of directors governs United Way of Fort Smith Area with all decisions made locally. Several hundred volunteers help with the campaign and with a variety of other activities. This United Way is independent of all other United Ways.
