Our Impact

UWEC June 2022 through July 2023 Impacts


In today’s complex world, there’s no one way or right way to tackle the challenges we face. Instead, it takes all of us working collectively, in all kinds of different ways, to get the job done. Through research and planning, community engagement, investments in programs and initiatives, public policy advocacy and public awareness activities, we are creating real and measurable changes in health, education, and financial stability.

We improve Okaloosa and Walton counties by focusing our attention and by supporting programs in three categories for maximum impact. Why health, education, and financial stability? Because when everyone has these, they thrive and our community thrives.

See our list of Partner Agencies here and our internal programs and initiatives here.

We connect people, resources, and ideas to:

Health : empower every member of our community to live a healthier life.

Education: help children, teens, and adults achieve their full potential through quality educational programs.

Financial Stability: ensure neighbors have the ability to meet their basic needs and find their paths to financial independence.
