Program Partners

Our Program Partners help families throughout our community with funding support from United Way of Franklin County made possible by generous donations from individuals and businesses.

We collaborate with these partners to address community level issues, not only investing in the programs, but also working closely with them to expand the effects of their work and track measurable outcomes. Each quarter, these funded programs report demonstrated successes of program participants. Over time, the patterns of achievements and goals are studied to help better align service delivery, improve program outcomes, and advise the investment of funds entrusted to United Way of Franklin County.
