Funded Programs

United Way of Northeast Arkansas helps fund more than 20 local nonprofit programs. We fund programs with a focus in the areas of education, health/safety and financial stability. We believe these are the building blocks for a better life and a stronger community. Together, these programs are working together in our community to end the cycle of poverty. We believe it takes all of us working together to create change!
