How can you help make an IMPACT?
The Union County Impact Plan now belongs to the people of Union County. It will lead our community in realizing our vision for children and families. We call on every resident to become part of the movement to build a culture in which all Union County children, adults, and families have the resources and community support they need to succeed.

The Union County Impact Plan proactively and broadly addresses prevention and intervention in five priority areas. Those priority areas are: health, economy, education, social and community, and neighborhood. Each focus area has its own specific areas of work to accomplish with volunteer coalitions and partners to promote awareness and to implement the strategies developed for targeted outcomes.
This Impact Plan serves as a catalyst for change in efforts to positively impact children, youth and families in our county and we know there are multiple agencies that do the same. If we as a community are truly committed to changing the odds for young people and families in need, we have to change the way we do business. No single organization or person can do it independently. We must work together like never before to generate a greater impact than anyone could ever achieve alone.
If you are involved in any effort that proactively and broadly addresses prevention and/or intervention in these areas we want to work with you. Come alongside and help you grow your efforts. Please call Debbie Watts at (870) 881-9015 to start that discussion.
In the words of Margaret Mead, “never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
