I don't have health insurance and never really needed it before. I was always healthy. But, then I had to start taking a very expensive medication each day. I didn't know how I would be to afford it then I found out about the FamilyWize program through the United Way.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

because of the United Way and their familywize program and I am able to receive a discount on my medication. United Way - you are a lifesaver!

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

no changes. Keep doing what you are doing.

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!

I stayed at HAVEN House for about 12 weeks with my children. The staff there was so helpful to help me find a job, work on my debt issues, helped me find daycare and eventually a place of our own.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am very thankful to the United Way. The Director at HAVEN House tells me that without United Way money they would not be able to keep their doors open.

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

no changes!!

Using the food pantry, the discount card for medicine

My child received counseling services from one of the United Way agencies. Because of UW funds we were charged on a sliding scale.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Without the sliding scale my child would not have received the counseling. We would not have been able to afford it.

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

nothing

The Callaway County United Way gave me a FamilyWize card. I've save thousands of dollars on my medications just in the last 12 months. I'm diabetic and have been told by insurance companies that I'm uninsurable at any price. But with 7 meds that I have to take every day, I wouldn't make ends meet without the FamilyWize card!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've saved 1,000's of dollars over the last year or so

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

I don't think there is anything that needs changing

Because the Callaway County United Way funds SERVE in our community, my family gets healthy meals for next to nothing. We don't need help with groceries every week, but if one of the kids gets sick, we're in trouble. Thank you, United Way. My whole family thanks you.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My family gets nutritious meals.

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

Don't change anything
