A Message from our Executive Director:

“Happy New Year!  I enjoyed spending the holidays with my three children, and now I’m refreshed and ready for a successful 2022.  This month I celebrate FIVE years with the United Way.   Raising money for my and my children’s hometown community is rewarding every single day.  I love this career tremendously and I love the Ohio Valley.  Wishing you all a happy, healthy 2022!”

– Jess Rine
