1 in 10 people in Greenville County are living in poverty.

While we are continually recognized as a top 10 great place to visit or raise a family, studies show that Greenville County is also one of the 10 hardest places in the country to climb out of poverty. We’re here to change that.

United Way of Greenville County’s

Economic Mobility Model

Getting to the root causes of poverty is what we do. Backed by local and national research, we’ve identified these three essential impact areas to make economic mobility possible for all in Greenville County.

Education

Delivering opportunities through education

Whether the earliest days of learning or after graduation, we believe in the power of education to lift individuals over the poverty line and be a consistent driver of success.

Financial Stability

Laying the foundation for financial stability

From workforce development to job training and financial assistance, we work to improve financial health, stability and mobility in greater Greenville County.

Communities

Building vibrant & equitable communities

Safe and well-connected neighborhoods, a strong network of local nonprofits, and equal access to resources makes all of Greenville County better.

We collaborate with individuals, businesses, government, foundations, and nonprofits to tackle the tough local issues that no single organization can solve on its own. We create and lead programs and initiatives designed to realize our vision of a Greenville County where all people have access to achieve their full potential.

A Stronger Greenville
County For All

Creating a measurable impact is about empowering people to strengthen the communities they’re part of — not just today, but for tomorrow. We’re about long-term solutions that not only create opportunities, but shatter barriers. Because to us, a person’s zip code shouldn’t limit his or her chance for success.
