In Union County, one and every four families live below federally defined poverty levels and cannot meet every day basic needs. Through funding programs and services in Union County, such as its Family Success Centers, UWGUC helps provide children and families with access to resources that seeks to help lift families out of poverty. As Vice President Vargas explains during the video, "...by helping one single mother get training and become a certified nurses aide, we're really talking about the impact that one person has on their children, parents, siblings and families and really being able to bring whole families out of poverty.
 
Viewers can also find the "We Are United Way of Greater Union County" video online at www.uwguc.org/vision-and-mission or on the organization's YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/UWGUC1.
