Your United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) supports the Community Safety Net by funding 46 partner agencies and 11 internal programs through the 2021 Community Annual Campaign.

These grants have helped them remain open and continue to provide relief to those affected by these tragic events.

Community needs continue to grow in these difficult times. The relief provided to Southwest Alabama comes from generous individual and corporate donations help change lives in Choctaw, Clarke, Mobile, and Washington Counties.
