Alabama Association for Behavior Analysis serves as a scientific and professional reference group that embraces the principles and practices of behavior analysis. Our goal is to promote research that will advance understanding of both human and animal behavior and to identify and promote the use of effective and humane behavioral procedures that meet the educational and habilitative needs of individuals. In addition, ALABA strives to serve as a resource for political, legislative, and policy-making bodies in Alabama in ways that support the scientific and professional interests of behavior analysis.
United Way of East Central Alabama is a locally based nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening lives, helping people, and improving community conditions in Calhoun, Cleburne, and Randolph Counties. With our partners, we work to create real, lasting change. We support community programs and initiatives that help those in need and support our goal of preventing problems from happening in the first place. The Little Tree Preschool in Anniston is a partner agency.
The mission of the United Way of Southwest Alabama is to improve the quality of life in the community. The United Way of Southwest Alabama will strengthen communities by focusing on uniting and mobilizing resources that support the building blocks for a better life: Education, Financial Stability, Health, and Essentials. Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We strengthen neighborhoods, bolster the health of our communities and change the lives of those who walk by us every day by helping and collaborating with local nonprofit agencies, and providing financial, volunteer, and advocacy support.
We also advocate for social issues, convene community leaders from across all sectors to solve local human services problems, provide volunteers for a myriad of local projects, study and address long-term solutions to emerging social challenges, and raise funds through workplace campaigns and individual donors.
The Lake Martin Area United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in Coosa and Tallapoosa counties. Our 28 agencies and 5 initiatives reach over 25,000 lives in our communities each year.
