We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all people. Because of this, the staff and board of United Way Serving Floyd County commit to:

  • Recognize the many ways inequity, particularly racial inequity, takes form both historically and today;
  • Name the structures that uphold injustice and work to eliminate these barriers to inclusion and equity from our own work and in our community;
  • Build the relationships needed to do this work and, with humility, join community efforts and invite others to join us; and
  • Actively honor, engage and embrace diversity with the core belief that it will strengthen our systems, partnerships, and community.
