Real change requires tackling the source of community challenges, not just the symptoms. We envision a healthier, safer community with a skilled workforce that contributes to the local economy and a younger generation that is educated and equipped for the opportunities of tomorrow. United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties works to create long-lasting change by addressing our community’s most serious problems through a results-focused approach that meets basic needs and improves the overall quality of life for everyone in our community. We collaborate with community partners to leverage resources and services needed to improve the lives of our residents. Supporting opportunities in Education, Income and Health, we believe the residents of Lake and Sumter Counties can reach their highest potential.
