I would make the United Way more transparent so that local businesses and individuals are aware that there donations stay inside Callaway County to help the community.

Callaway County United Way Inc. is a charity that has helped many people of the community. It is a part of a large support network that helps those in need and brings this community together. Without the United Way as a part of the that network the network would not be nearly as effective in helping the people of Callaway County as it is now. They do a great job in outreach and communitication to make sure memebers of this county know exactly how they can be better neighbors to each other. And that is an invaluable skill.

One weekend I was afraid for our lives. I called the United Way number. It was a Friday night and almost midnight. I really didn't expect anyone to answer but she did. The United Way lady was very nice and helpful. She calmed me down and told me what to do.

I was saved that night. I called the police and they helped connect me to CARDV. My children and I were safe. We were put up in a safe place and the next morning looked a lot brighter because of the United Way.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

NO!
