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

North Country Center of Nonprofit Excellence

The mission of the NCCNE is to create a professional nonprofit community in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties that maximizes limited resources to most effectively and efficiently serve the community through the education and utilization of best practices, collaboration, and specialized training.

Population(s) Served

The United Way of Northern New York is a partner of the UNITED FOR ALICE effort, which focuses resources on Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) families. In Northern New York, nearly 40% of all households are either ALICE or below. ALICE families have no safety net in times of crisis; their income falls short of being able to pay for the essentials; and they work but are not earning enough to survive.

Population(s) Served

The United Way of Northern New York's Community Impact Program brings the UWNNY to the table with community leaders and stakeholders to understand each city, town and village's challenges and priorities. Together, UWNNY works with the community to develop realistic services and programs to aggressively solve the problems. In partnership with nonprofit organizations and corporate responsible companies, the services and programs are put in place, monitored, and adjusted to become more effective and efficient.
