Who We Are

About United Way of Southeast Missouri

United Way of Southeast Missouri fights for the health, education and financial stability of everyone in the communities we serve: Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Scott City, Perry County and Bollinger County.

Over the years our business model has evolved from being a Community Chest offering emergency help in times of need to using the power of our network to create lasting change.  We have moved from merely collecting and distributing funds to identifying solutions and working with others to change lives right here in Southeast Missouri.

"Few of us will change the world, but each of us can change lives right here in Southeast Missouri."
