My Aunt Lou isn't able to drive any more. Callaway County United Way provides funding so that she can get to and from her doctor appointments in Columbia. I have to work. My parents have to work. If it weren't for the CCUW, someone would have to take off to get her to these appointments. It's a great program.

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

The relief we feel knowing Aunt Lou is safe and transported to MD appointments

My mother is a shut in. She has a hard time caring for herself but we want her to live independently as long as she can. CCUW funds provide the funding for nutritious meals that are delivered to her every day. Without the CCUW, my mother would probably have to be in a nursing home or assisted living. I thank God every day for the CCUW

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

My mother is able to still live independently

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

I would not

Because of funding from the CCUW I got the counseling I needed. I'd fallen into a drug scene and couldn't get myself out. Finally I found one of the CCUW agencies and because of them I'm clean today. The CCUW provides funding so the agency can give me a sliding scale, based on my income. Even I can afford the counseling I needed.

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

I'm clean and sober today

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

I don't think I'd change anything. It worked for me.

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

The look on my child's face when we knew we were getting a scholarship

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

I wouldn't make any changes
