It’s a new year - hello, 2021! As we begin a new year, we are excited about the possibilities ahead as we reflect on the years gone by.
This year, United Way of the Bluegrass is celebrating 100 years of fighting for the basic needs, education and financial stability of every person in Central Kentucky. We will highlight 100 Heroes of United Way of the Bluegrass, looking at the people and organizations who have worked to make an impact across our community through the years. We’ll keep the Centennial Celebration going by traveling through each decade for a closer look at the past that has led to the present we know and love now.
Stay connected to the story on our blog and social media outlets, using the links at the bottom of the page.
As we welcome a new year, we’re also saying “welcome home” to our new physical office space!
Effective Monday, January 18, you can find us at our new address:
651 Perimeter Drive
Lexington, KY 40517
NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN THE BLUEGRASS.
Have you heard about the new UWBG WayPoint Centers? WayPoint’s mission is to create an access point for families and individuals, and to provide vital programming to people living in underserved neighborhoods.
UWBG’s WayPoint strategy was born out of an in-depth analysis of our regional community and current demographics, and a meaningful understanding of what our community needs to evolve into a better, more resilient Bluegrass.
Learn more about WayPoint – coming to communities across the Bluegrass beginning in 2021 – here.
LIVE UNITED IN THE NEW YEAR AND BEYOND
As our community moves forward, our fight for the basic needs, education and financial stability of every person in Central Kentucky is more important than ever before. This is why we must LIVE UNITED-- because we are stronger together.
