United Way of Henry County & Martinsville strives to ensure that all area children and youth start school ready to succeed, become proficient readers by third grade and stay on track through school so that they graduate on time and are prepared to pursue post secondary educational opportunities.
Each year, our campaign funds support numerous partner agencies and programs to help us advance these important community indicators. We also raise alternative resources from grant funds to help our own initiatives, such as:
- Smart Beginnings Martinsville Henry, a community coalition committeed to ensuring that all children enter kindergarten healthy and ready to learn
- Help Engage Youth (HEY) Collaborative, a network of agencies that offer youth-related programs outside of the K-12 school day
