ONE in SIX residents, including ONE in FOUR children in our region lives in POVERTY


Together, we make our whole community more vibrant and successful. UWCK is working hard to transform the quality of life for all in our region – ensuring more kids are ready for school, more families are financially stable and self-sufficient, and more people are healthy. It’s not about short-term charity, it’s about lasting change.

UWCK convened a wide range of partners from within the region that embrace the bold goal of cutting the poverty level in half in Central Kentucky. This aspiration for our region has continued to gain traction through the community, although a variety of leaders agreed that it cannot be achieved without the endorsement and buy-in of local business leadership, coupled with the non-profit and government sectors.

As you see the faces of people involved in all angles of our work, we hope you will see LIVE UNITED manifest in the counties of Hardin, Breckinridge, Grayson, LaRue and Meade; in real people coming together around a common cause and achieving meaningful, long-lasting results. We recognize that conquering poverty in Central Kentucky is overwhelming for any single individual or organization; however, if we work collectively with the same agenda for change, moving our community to the next level and beyond becomes a reality.
