When it comes to assisting our returning veterans, the status quo is unacceptable. But still, many veterans aren't getting the help they need. That's where United Way of Central Georgia's Mission United program steps in.
This new venture coordinates services aimed at helping active duty members, veterans and their families. These programs can be anything from government-run to agency-driven. Mission United bridges the gap in veteran assistance.
By plugging into Mission United, veterans, active duty service members and their families get streamlined access to:
- Employment services.
- Financial services.
- Legal assistance.
- Health care.
- Education and training.
- Stable housing.
One phone call is all it takes to connect with a client navigator who guide a veteran through the process - from beginning to end.
Growing the Mission
More can be done. More must be done.
United Way of Central Georgia has received a $250,000 matching grant to greatly expand the impact of Mission United.
Now we need your help to make that dollar-for-dollar match. Donate whatever you can to this cause; your $50 becomes $100; your $500 turns into $1,000 and so on.
More About the Need

Sam Nunn, a former U.S. Senator and chairman of the Senate Armed Service Committee, was the first to donate toward the matching grant, and encourages others to join this effort.
