Don't let people tell you there is no poverty in southern Chester County...
 

 

This report on local childhood poverty offers a stark picture of growing needs in southern Chester County—just as United Way of Southern Chester County launches its 2013 campaign.  The report reveals that there were 1,903 area children ages 5 to 17 living in poverty in 2011, a  65% increase in five years.  Carrie Freeman, CEO for the United Way of Southern Chester County, remarked, “These statistics reflect what our agencies feel every day.  The recession has put enormous pressure on our neighbors.  Now more than ever we need everyone to contribute what they can to this year’s campaign.” To view the full report, click here.

 
LIFT...A Free Budgeting Program
 
 
UWSCC votes to remain independent
 

Last  year, a merger was announced between United Way of Southeastern PA and the United Ways located in southern New Jersey. Although UWSCC was included in those discussions, our board voted to remain independent and devoted to serving the needs of southern Chester County.  

Our focus has always been local. Our Kennett Square location keeps us in close touch with our area's non-profits. The decision to remain independent will allow us to continue to identify unmet needs in our community, build coalitions to create solutions that fit our area's unique needs, and ensure that donations made to us are put to work in our own community.  

We are proud of our organization and grateful for your support. As the largest funder for local non-profits in our area, we remain committed to improve the lives of our neighbors in need.

Thank you all for your continued support of our mutual work.                                                               

                                         

                                              

 
 

 

    Perhaps you didn't know that UWSCC has its own endowment fund. Its intent is to permanently benefit our southern Chester County community. 

             Create YOUR legacy to southern Chester County with an endowment gift to UWSCC.
