The YMCA of Callaway County is becoming a wonderful place for everyone! They not only have terrific workout & social programs, but are also beginning a community garden and children's play area. My children and I have benefitted from the YMCA. I sure hope they are able to get the extra funding - it will be put to good use for many, many people!

I am a college student with more month than money sometimes. It's good to know that I can go to the Food Pantry if I need to and get enough food to get through the month. They don't ask any questions, and always make me feel welcome.

I am homeless man in my mid 50's. Out of work for two years because of health. Our House, one of the CCUW agencies gives us a good, safe place to sleep, eat and shower. They have said if it weren't for the CCUW they would not have been able to open the Wiley House shelter for men and women. God Bless them for their help.

As a recipient of United Way funds, I would like to express what that means for our organization. As most non-profits the garnering of funds is always a challenge. The Callaway County United Way has been very supportive of us and the work we do as a victim service program. I believe the dedication of the staff and board is exceptional and we as a county are blessed to have them.

I am a client that was assisted by one of the agencies that CCUW supports. This agency has helped me and my family start a new life and I would not be where I am today without their help and support.

The Callaway County United Way helps so many people in our community.

The Callaway Senior Center serves a nutritious lunch to the senior citizens of Callaway County. Without the help of The Callaway County United Way, this may not be possible. Keep up the good work!

The CCUW has a great team that focuses on communication, meeting expectations and keeping abreast with changes in the community. It accomplishes so much with very few employees.

I work with the Dental Initiative and know CCUW is backing our goals of obtaining affordable dental for all Callawegians. As the Initiative continues to focus on this issue, it will be imperative to have community support and CCUW will help get the word out!

Callaway UW does their very best to manage the funds raised and allocations made. Funding made to the Great Rivers Council BSA makes it possible to support appox. 8oo youth in the area. Funding from the UW supports 3 Scout Units at The Missouri School for the Deaf (fully funded program), send kids to camp, and the annual food drive which also benefits the community directly.

Being a member agency of United Way of Callaway County is vitally important to our mission of providing advocacy, education and sheltering for the homeless in Callaway County.
They provided valuable technical assistance last year when our organization was undergoing a major mission change.
They provide us with opportunies to network with other member agencies at twce yearly roundtables.
They give a voice to our clients' stories and our agency's mission and needs through their speaker's bureau.
As the second largest recipient of their funding we can rest assured that the utilities will remain on at our two shelters throughout the year enabling us to provide more than 3700 bed nights to the children, women and men experiencing homelessness in Callaway County in 2010.
