Helping Children Succeed

United Way and its partners focus on results at three crucial stages in a child's education. We invest in proven programs that improve academic development and outcomes. We also provide services to support good parenting and a stable home environment. This ensures that the next generation is fully prepared to lead and work in our community.

We meet these goals through timely action and measurable outcomes. In 2012, United Way:
