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.

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 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 have used the 211 service a lot in the last two years, and the perscription card too. I got a lot of information about how to get help when I was laid off and we couldn't afford to pay our utililities and buy food like we was used too.

I have given to the United Way in the past but unable to afford it since my retirement. I never thought I would need to call the United Way but I did.

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!

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.

The CCUW supports an organization that provides legal services to people like me. Without them, I probably wouldn't have my kids. They are the best

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.

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

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.

If it weren't for the CCUW my child would not participate in several programs in the county because my family cannot afford it. the CCUW makes it possible and provides scholarships to families in need.
