We both have a robust history of serving the county for 100+ years, and we intend to continue to grow and listen to work with county residents for another 100 years. Mission Health and UWABC’s purpose in Buncombe Co is different. At first glance, it may seem that only our history and love for the community overlap. However, when two organizations care about the citizens of this region, there are bound to be multiple areas of co-working and communication to ensure that the communities we serve have every possible opportunity to thrive.
Examples of our collaboration are the Live United Campaign; this annual campaign helps UWABC sustain our work from Community School initiatives to Community investment funds. Mission Health has consistently ensured that UWABC is highlighted as a local organization where anyone can become a philanthropist. UWABC is one of the top recipients of the Mission Health HCA Healthcare Colleague Giving Match. However, as our world has evolved in the past 100 years, so has our partnership.
