Overview

Finding Solutions

When faced with divorce and lack of child support, Megan needed help in many ways: food, job skills, and financial assistance. Because Beaufort County United Way and its community partners had already established a path for others in her situation, Megan was able to take some critical steps toward independence.

"The United Way does a lot in our community to bolster collaboration and provide support for people in Megan’s situation. Helping her connect with food assistance, job training, and afterschool care allowed Megan to achieve success. I am always delighted to see how much the United Way makes this kind of impact in Beaufort County." - James A. Madson, United Way Board President
