Our Service Area

With a footprint that covers nearly 20% of the state of Virginia, United Way of Southwest Virginia programs and initiatives serve the counties of Bland, Buchanan, Carroll, Dickenson, Floyd, Giles, Grayson, Lee, Montgomery, Pulaski, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington, Wise, and Wythe, and the cities of Bristol, Galax, Norton, and Radford.

We are more than the fundraisers. We are the hand-raisers. The game-changers.

  • We create local, innovative solutions that tackle the toughest problems in the areas of health, education and financial stability.
  • We offer local expertise and a global footprint.
  • We provide leadership, influence and a trusted brand.
  • We are one network of individuals and organizations in nearly 1,800 communities, working together to inspire and transform.

Together, we constantly monitor the problems facing our community and find solutions to our most pressing needs.

We involve experts, leaders, practitioners, neighborhoods, community members, governments, and systems. We work across partisan and income divides, leading community conversations and bringing people from all walks of life into the solution conversation. Whether we’re leading a coalition, developing an initiative, driving agencies to common outcomes, or creating collective impact, United Way is a driving force – in communities and for communities. There is more work to do in Southwest Virginia, but we can’t do it on our own. We need you. Change doesn’t happen alone. Hope isn’t a one-man band.

We have one life. To live better, we must LIVE UNITED.
