MESSAGE FROM
THE PRESIDENT

Lindsay Callahan
President and Chief Executive Officer
United Way Fresno and Madera Counties

“At United Way Fresno and Madera Counties, we have gone through significant changes over the past few years. We are evolving into an organization that is helping working families thrive and shifting the trajectory of our community to make lasting change.

As we grow and expand the reach of our 24/7/365 day 2-1-1 helpline into Madera County, we are taking on difficult issues like human trafficking, veterans assistance and unemployment because as our community changes, so does its needs. Our support of long-standing projects like VITA and 2-1-1 will be enhanced as we tackle new issues. We are poised to be bold and innovative so our community is better served.

You see the words LIVE UNITED on everything we do because without all of us… you, me, businesses, community partners, volunteers, advocates, all of us working together, nothing gets accomplished. We are not in the business of helping the needy, we are in the business of changing people’s lives so they can help themselves.

If you really want to live in a better place where children graduate school, get good jobs and raise families in a safe environment,
we need your financial support because changing the world is not easy or cheap but the old adage still rings true to this day, “You get what you pay for.”
