What does it mean to Live United?

DSC_0060 breakout groupWhen we Live United, we as individuals think outside ourselves and have the power to facilitate change. When we think of others lives as linked to our own, our compassion grows. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all.  We change the lives of those who walk by us every day.


On June 4, the United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area held DSC_0080 table shotour annual Board of Directors Retreat. The theme was strengthening our community through collaboration and access to health and wellness. Dr. Richard Lindsay spoke to the Board about the needs of our aging population and how our work could improve health outcomes for our community.  Gordon Walker of JABA, Erica Viccellio of the Charlottesville Free Clinic and Judy Smith of Jefferson Area CHIP shared their experiences and insights on collaboration among nonprofits.
