Changing lives, saving lives

A tradition of caring in southeast Arkansas







While the United Way of Southeast Arkansas offices are in Pine Bluff, one or more of the 25 partner agencies provide services in 16 southeast Arkansas counties. Volunteers are at the core of the organization which supports the efforts of these partner agencies providing benefits to people in every corner of our communities.

The United Way of Southeast Arkansas partner agencies provide services in these Arkansas counties:

• Arkansas • Chicot • Drew • Lincoln
• Ashley • Cleveland • Grant • Monroe
• Bradley • Dallas • Jefferson • Ouachita
• Calhoun • Desha • Lee • Phillips

There is a strong tradition of giving and helping in southeast Arkansas. The United Way of Southeast Arkansas traces its roots to the Pine Bluff Community Chest of 1924.

Governed by a board of volunteers

The United Way is governed by a diverse board of volunteer community leaders who give unselfishly of their time, talents, and resources to ensure that deserving families and individuals in our communities receive maximum benefits from your gifts to the United Way.

Funding to partner agencies is governed by our allocations committee. This committee of volunteers receives requests from agencies and financial reports from the annual campaign. Committee members visit each agency, analyze the financial information and assess needs to develop the most equitable method of distributing United Way funds. Our professional staff provides support to the board, committees and volunteers to keep the wheels of the organization turning.

Please look through our site to discover what we do and how you can fit in as a volunteer in the United Way or one of our partner agencies. We welcome your questions and comments.
