United Way of Southwest Virginia is fighting for the health of the region by promoting healthy eating, lowering the cost of prescription medications, building a more resilient community, and integrating health into early childhood development.
Uniting for Play
United Way of Southwest Virginia created the Uniting for Play grant initiative to develop and improve local partner programs that involve children in active play and limit screen time.
FamilyWize improves the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities through its partnerships with more than 100,000 community organizations to make prescription medication more affordable and more accessible for all. To find out more, visit FamilyWize.com.
