What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

This is best briefly summarized by our MISSION AND VISION: Mission: Mobilizing our Mid-Maine community to improve outcomes in health, education, and financial stability More specifically, the problems facing the community that we seek to address include challenges to accessing needed health care, limited resources, capacity issues, insufficient community awareness or engagement around the issues and what is needed to build effective community responses, transportation challenges throughout our service area, growing poverty rates, growing child abuse and neglect rates, growing food instability issues, affordable housing, and wages that adequately cover living expenses and allow for the establishment of personal savings. Looking back, we’ll know we were successful when we see: United Way of Mid-Maine successfully facilitated opportunities for all Mid-Mainers to achieve their highest potential.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

United Way of Mid-Maine's goal is to address the most pressing needs of the Mid-Maine community in the areas of health, education, and financial stability. In working towards achieving that goal, UWMM will continue to focus on:
1) Building Community Engagement
2) Operating an Innovative, High-Performing Organization
3) Building Community Impact by Creating a High-Performing Network

Community Engagement includes the goal of building a strong, vibrant Volunteer Network for the Mid-Maine region.

Our Community Impact focus area goals are:
Health: All individuals in Mid-Maine are in healthy environments with access to health supports and services.

Education: All children in Mid-Maine grow up in a stable environment, safe, healthy, and ready to succeed.

Financial Stability: Mid-Mainers are financially literate, with access to skills and training to secure employment allowing them to be financially stable.

ACTION STEPS:
Through community listening sessions, and gathering information and data from partner agencies, we learn about community needs.

We raise money through workplace campaigns and individual giving programs and special events.

We identify programs and initiatives that are successfully addressing the needs of the community and help build capacity for those programs through investments of funds, building volunteer support and engagement, and advocacy and education efforts.

Community Impact Teams (CITs) review community needs and program successes, year 'round, and make recommendations on how to more effectively meet community needs, and respond to identified unmet needs.

COMMUNITY IMPACT:
Community Impact Teams are groups of volunteers who meet monthly to stay abreasst of the current issues affecting our community as well as monitor the progess of our programs and initiatives in each of our focus areas: Health, Education, and Financial Stability.

Health/ Meeting Immediate Needs: UWMM drives four community initiatives; Emergency Food and Shelter Program; FamilyWize; Keeping Mid-Maine Warm, and Pantry Project. We also currently fund ten Health focused programs offered by eight partner agencies.
IMPACT: Last fiscal year, over 15,000 Mid-Maine residents were served by these programs.

Education/ Strengthening Children, Youth, and Families: UWMM drives the Youth Homelessness Initiative, supported by the Stuff the Bus school supply drive Day of Caring. We also currently fund 13 Education focused programs offered by eight partner agencies.
IMPACT: Last fiscal year, over 10,000 Mid-Maine residents were served by these programs.

Financial Stability/ Promoting Independence: UWMM drives the Central Maine CA$H Coalition, providing free tax preparation for low-to-moderate income Mid-Mainers, and providing access to directly relevant financial literacy and development resources. We also currently fund eight programs with this focus offered by six partner agencies.
IMPACT: Last fiscal year, over 20,000 Mid-Maine residents were served by these programs.

We achieve the success we do by building Community Engagement through our Volunteer Program: Agents of IMPACT. UWMM grows volunteer engagement and builds capacity for all nonprofits throughout Mid-Maine. UWMM provides the VolunteerME Mid-Maine website for matching volunteers to volunteer opportunities at volunteer.uwmm.org.
IMPACT: As of 10/2018, VolunteerME Mid-Maine has connected 900 volunteers with over 400 opportunities at 60 organizations in Mid-Maine.

With 4 Employees, hundreds of volunteers, 21 Partner Agencies, and hundreds of Community Partner groups, United Way of Mid-Maine is uniquely positioned to help our community meet these goals.

With the focus areas of Health, Education, and Financial Stability, UWMM drives key initiatives, including: 2-1-1 (Statewide resource for health and human services needs referrals); VolunteerME (community engagement and leadership development); CA$H Coalition (IRS Tax training for free VITA tax preparation and referral to financial literacy and stability resources); FamilyWize (prescription discount program); Keeping Mid-Maine Warm (home heating assistance); Pantry Project (food stability program); Stuff the Bus (school supplies for disadvantaged youth); Youth Homelessness Initiative (support for at-risk youth to help them stay in school and graduate); and participating in Community Conversations to identify emerging needs in the community, and the responses being built around those needs.

In a service area of 114,500 people, programs and initiatives funded and otherwise supported by United Way of Mid-Maine reach the lives of over 45,000 people.

United Way of Mid-Maine is currently aligning our reporting within the Results Based Accountability/ Results Based Leadership framework, and are now requiring partner agencies receiving funding for community programs to report back within the same framework, to create a common measurement to report back to the community.
