Advocate for change.
When a child succeeds in school, when a family becomes financially stable, and when our friends and neighbors have good health; we all succeed. We LIVE UNITED.
At Rappahannock United Way, we work to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of the most significant problems facing our community.
"Living United" means joining other community efforts that are all working together toward one goal. We invite YOU to LIVE UNITED.
