Join the Fight - Meredith's Story

October 4th, 2017

Meredith Clark began her career at United Way of Greater Chattanooga in 2012 as a loaned executive and is now a part of the Impact team as the Director of Partner Relations. She enjoys coming to work every day. “The work we do is impactful and I love being a connector to help both United Way and Non-profits. I am a native of Chattanooga and I love this community” Said Clark.

Not only does Meredith have a passion for her career, she also volunteers along with her sister Malone as mentors to 8 year old Jaleria and 9 year old, Marcus at least once a month. “We felt that we wanted to get involved someway other than our job. I have volunteered since I was in college working with youth in the community,” says Clark. “My parents have poured into me my entire life and my family values giving back. And besides, my mentees are super cute.” Meredith has been with United Way of Greater Chattanooga for five years and she says she fights for stability. “I want every person in the community to have someone they can depend on.”

For almost 100 years United Way of Greater Chattanooga has been a trusted leader, mobilizing resources to address the community’s most pressing issues, resulting in solutions that create real, meaningful change for our friends, coworkers, families and community. We encourage our team to implement five core values; Impact is our business- Our value is more than money, Think we before me- Prioritize team and community over self, Own it- Be accountable for your actions, Challenge the process- Always seek a breakthrough to a better way, and Be the stretch- 50%/25%/25% learn continuously.

Thank you for Joining the Fight for Education, Stability and Support for every person in the community and having confidence in our team to follow through the process. United we fight. United we win.
