Our Impact


United Way creates lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of community issues. We provide a safety net of basic needs services. But we also focus on school success and workforce development with two specific goals: all children enter school ready and all youth graduate high school. We all win when a child succeeds in school and when there are jobs for working families. 


We work with content experts to help drive the investment decisions of the United Way of Pitt County.

In addition to the Community Impact Cabinet members listed below, we work with around 25 other volunteers to review grants, create community level goals as well as the strategies needed to meet those goals. If you are interested in learning more about this process or if you would like to become involved, contact Dwain Cooper at 252-758-1604 ext. 210.
