In response to the recent Tornado events, the United Way of West Georgia, Inc. in partnership with the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley has reinstituted the Troup County Emergency Relief Fund to provide flexible resources to organizations in Troup County working with those most affected by the tornadoes. Charitable grants will fund existing organizations and programs that have deep roots in our community and strong experience working with families experiencing hardships.
The Emergency Relief Fund hopes to move an initial round of area grants within the next few weeks. United Way of West Georgia will administer grants from the Emergency Relief Fund in partnership with CFCV and in close collaboration with community partners and local governments. Together, we will proactively identify potential grant recipients, solicit guidance on potential partnerships and recommend final awards as quickly as possible. Funds will be released on a rolling basis as fundraising continues throughout the recovery phases making it possible to move resources quickly and adapt to evolving needs in subsequent funding phases. Both UWWG and CFCV are waiving the administrative fees that would normally be associated with this Fund. Banking fees, including credit card transactions for contributions to the Fund, will apply.

Hear from volunteer Kejuana Drake on her experience
United Way, along with dozens of partners, developed a set of 14 measures that can be used as a tool to help the region assess how children, the families that support them and the communities that surround them, are doing. This data is bringing people together from across the community to advance a shared goal and drive transformative results for children and families.
