The United Way of Taylor County is a local, volunteer driven organization whose mission is to unite people and resources to build a stronger, healthier community.
Equity & Inclusion
United Way of Taylor County strives for equity, the intentional inclusion of everyone in society, for our community. Equity is achieved when systemic, institutional and historical barriers based on race, gender, sexual orientation and other identities are dismantled and no longer predict socioeconomic, education and health outcomes.
We seek to dismantle disparities and strive to engage residents and community members, especially those whose voices have traditionally been marginalized, in the shared work of fortifying equity and empowerment. We work with public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, support, opportunities and networks they need to thrive. We commit to leveraging all of our assets (e.g., convening, strategic investments, awareness building, advocacy) to create a more equitable community where all people in Taylor County are valued and safe.
