Living united on the steps in Frankfort

Anyone can champion the cause.

Breaking the cycles of dropouts, poverty and poor health in Central Kentucky depends on engaging the entire community. Join tens of thousands of United Way advocates by telling your friends and colleagues about the importance of getting involved.

Whether you’re speaking out to improve education, income and health, reaching out to members of Congress, or wearing the LIVE UNITED shirt to show your support, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.

 

 

 

So go ahead and advocate in a LIVE UNITED world. Do it in public. Be visible. Be loud.
