As a board member of the only organization (Our House) in the County that serves the homeless community by providing shelter, we rely on the Callaway County United Way for a major part of our funding. Were it not for their generosity, Our House would be hard pressed to keep their doors open. The local United Way Chapter has been an integral of the community for a number of years. Many not-for-profit organizations have benefited from their kindness.

I thoroughly enjoy serving on the board of the Callaway County United Way. It is a great organization that provides much needed services to the community. It seems as if everyone involved (board, volunteers, etc) is dedicated to making the CCUW the best organization that it can be.

One of the organizations funded by the CCUW is SERVE. Many of their clientele also deal with my workplace which allows me to see the direct impact SERVE has has on their lives.

The Callaway County United Way is a great organization!

While serving as a student board member for the Callaway County United Way I received a better understanding of the needs of the community, how the organization worked and received my degree for a career in the social services field.

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

No changes that I see. Of course more money to fund the agencies is always needed.

I am a former Board Member for the Callaway County United Way. During my time with the Board I was better able to understand the needs of the community.

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

During the agency hearings I was able to hear from the agencies applying for funding. I listened to stories about individuals in need and success stories of how clients were able to succeed because to the services they received.

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

The organization is very organized. If any changes were needed I'd say find more funding to assist more individuals in the community.

I have been involved with Callaway County United Way for "several" years. Beginning as a staff member of one of our agencies. The organization and dedication of all involved (board, volunteers and agencies) has always impressed me. Everyone pulling together to make things happen for the good and betterment of the communities in Callaway County. There are so many "neighbors" in need of the services offered by the agencies, all the way from preventative to emergency assistance. I feel CCUW, as a whole, acts as a great steward of the funding raised for our organizations.

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

I have personally seen and heard feedback from recipients of the services offered by our agencies.

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

Continue to offer support, challenge agencies where necessary to make sure they are using the funding properly. As is already being done.

I am a student at Westminster College and have helped volunteer for several of the United Way's activities. I also recently have been selected to serve on the Board of the United Way.

The Westminster College community.

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

Add another full time employee so that she was not always so busy and could help accomplish more than she already does.
