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.

  • Increased early grade literacy for 6,397 children.
