Thank You for Joining the Fight for Derek!

September 13th, 2017

For years, Derek Dickerson held awesome jobs as a painter andgraphic design artist in Chattanooga, but he never understood why he hadtrouble keeping the jobs he loved. Over time, Derek developed an anxietydisorder,   was on disability for a medical condition, and was out ofwork for many years. Like many others in his situation, Derek isolated himselffrom everyone and faced depression. 

At United Way of Greater Chattanooga, we fight for Education,Support, and Stability for every person in the community. Because of handraisers and game changers like you, Derek has won that fight through ourBuilding Stable Lives program at the AIM Center. 

Derek found the courage to take the first step and received helpwith job search and support through the clubhouse program. Thanks to yourinvestment at United Way of Greater Chattanooga, Derek is an outstandingcitizen that holds a job, has a stable living situation, and recently purchasedhis own car.  

 Thankyou for Joining the Fight! United We fight. United We Win! Live UNITED!
