Throughout our history, United Way has done extraordinary work to improve people’s lives and build strong communities.
With our focus on community impact, United Way has a key role to play in advocating for good public policy. Without community input, our priorities in health, education, and financial stability will lose critical government policy and funding support.
Join us and advocate for a health, education, financial stability or nonprofit strengthening issue that you are passionate about.
Your community needs you to have an impact on public policy decisions. Advocating in your community does not simply mean lobbying on a specific piece of legislation.
The Self Sufficiency Standard is a measure of income adequacy that is based on the cost of basic needs for working families. Learn about the Horry County Self Sufficiency Standard and why it is important to get involved and use your voice towards government policy.
Here at United Way of Horry County, we work closely with our United Way of South Carolina State Association on policy work at the local and state level. Learn more about the United Way of South Carolina State Association public policy priorities here.
