Everyday people in Jefferson County people struggle with issues that seem impossible to solve.
Affordable housing opportunities are almost non-existent. More than 20% of families live below poverty levels versus the statewide average of 11%. Youth arrests for drug and alcohol violations are double the statewide average and referrals to Child Protective Services are 30% higher. Across our school districts an average of 55% of students qualify for a free or reduced lunch program*.
These are tough problems that threaten the future of individuals and our community. But Give Jefferson, the United Good Neighbors’ 2018 Annual Campaign, has vetted 50 local local nonprofits to improve health, education, and economic stability for everyone in our community. Give Jefferson connects people with the causes that matter most.
