United Way in Action
There are real human beings behind the statistics. These community impact stories are a testament to why we do what we do.
"Without a person being emotionally, physically and psychologically healthy, they can’t hold a job. And if you can’t hold a job, it starts that downward spiral back into incarceration. So this piece, which is vital for the stabilization of our men, is a piece that United Way gets and they supported us on multi-year funding for that. "
"Long-term funding is essential if you are going to have good programming. If you have a one-year grant and then the next year have to be looking for another grant, that is resources in an agency that are taken up by an admin that could be spent on program development. Multi-year grants are essential. "
