Adrianne Price

Your title: Vice President, Community Impact 

Tell us a bit about your background: I have worked at United Ways or United Way funded programs for 2 decades. I spent my early career connecting community members to services, especially around health care needs. A few years ago, I got my master’s in public health to better understand the interventions, systems and policies that impact everyone in our community, positively or negatively.  Combined, those experiences have helped me to keep both an individual or agency, and systems in mind when planning or working on community projects.   

When did you join the team at United Way of Greater Stark County? 2017 

Briefly explain your role at United Way: I lead our community investments, which means I help chart the course for the types of investments we will make with input from stakeholders, staff and volunteer leadership. I monitor community needs and resources, identify partnerships to address those and monitor progress to goals. It’s a great job because I get to work with some of the smartest, most earnest and caring people in our community.  

Have you held any previous positions at United Way? If so, what positions? I joined United Way as the health impact council director and public policy manager.  

What do you enjoy most about your work at United Way? I enjoy working with the most remarkable people in our community.  

What community partners or volunteer programs are you most passionate about supporting? Please explain. That’s like trying to pick a child!  

What do you like to do outside of work? I am a big fan of perennials, hiking and heavy metal.  

If you could share any piece of advice with the children of Stark County, what would it be?  Don’t think that anyone else has a better chance of doing great things than you. It’s in you already. Keep going.
