Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Obstacles to education can hinder the public's ability to get a good job and maintain stability for families, therefore creating increased probability for poverty. The United Way of Moore County's adoption of a strategy to improve academic proficiency for the 0- 5 age group presented multiple difficulties in finding county wide measurements for all children. The reasons are many and included privacy limitations, children of the age cohort moving into the community from different educational backgrounds, lack of resource in the northern half of the county. All but one of the evidence-based early literacy initiatives saw a positive trend in the last tracking period. One other remained the same.

Charting impact

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

To advance the common good by focusing on these building blocks for a good life in our communities:

• a quality education that leads to a stable job,
• sustained financial independence,
• and good health.

In addition, we are working to improve the numbers of children in Moore County who are reading at grade-level by the third grade.

United Way of Moore County is working to see a 10% increase in the county aggregate mClass proficiency base score per academic year by encouraging partner agencies to establish programs that support reading proficiency in the 0-5-year-old population they serve either directly or indirectly.

The United Way provided grants to partner agencies who meet certain criteria and standards of affiliation. In order to focus on the early grade reading initiative, all partner agencies are encouraged to establish programs that support reading proficiency in the 0-5-year-old population they serve either directly or indirectly; and they must provide outcome measurements.

The United Way of Moore County has been able to maintain its level of financial support to the community, and by implementing a zero- to 5-year-old education initiative has been instrumental in promoting early literacy as a way to predict long-term success for children growing up in the community. In addition, we are able to issue grants to those organizations who provide emergency and other critical health and human services to people living in Moore County.
