What We’re Fighting For

United Way of Fort Smith Area has provided change in our area since 1928. We mobilize our community in ways that no single agency, individual, or government can to enhance the ability of people to care for one another. United Way addresses the needs important to people who live and work in Crawford, Franklin, LeFlore, Logan, Sebastian and Sequoyah counties.
