I chose to be a part of the Changemakers because United Way is focused on the right things; fighting homelessness with an eye towards empathy and dignity, extending support to our underserved neighbors with a lens that promotes equity and diversity, and lending food, rent and tuition assistance to our neighbors working to better their lives and to break the cycle of poverty that afflicts our disadvantaged communities.

Being a change maker has provided me an opportunity to meet with people who share the same connection with United Way, and to give back the community in a hands-on way. I am thankful for United Way to take care of our community and to help people in need.

There is an insane amount of untapped potential within our community trapped behind inequitable systems and processes. I have seen firsthand UWKC’s initiatives draw from this well and witnessed the life changing impact it has on people.
