As we look ahead to 2018

At this time of year, resolutions are everywhere. Setting goals is important, but the true key to success is to also create a plan. Just like you, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County is committed to success. We are just a few days away from January 1. Which means our organization is wrapping up a 3-year strategic plan and will begin implementing our 2018-2020 plan next week.

This was the first time North Carolina’s statewide Emergency Management department utilized NC 2-1-1 to serve as a support service during a disaster response.
