What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Fund Distribution

This program allocates funding, raised by our annual United Way campaign, to 46 programs at 30 different partner agencies.  Community volunteers determine needs and recommend funding based on program quality, agency capacity, and alignment with the priorities in our Community Impact Plan.  Programs are required to demonstrate they can meet indicators of performance which produce outcomes that make a difference in the lives of people they serve.  Our primary focus areas are health, education, and financial stability.
