Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

United Way of Trumbull County (UWTC) goes beyond temporary fixes to create lasting change in our community by bringing people and organizations together around innovative solutions. We give grants to local partner agencies with programs that support one or more of our focus areas which include basic needs, health, education, and income. UWTC has also become an important organization for social change in our communities through new partnerships that help us address third grade reading scores and assist individuals and families to manage limited resources.

Our programs

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

Ready, Set, Go!

Our Ready, Set Go program is a two-week summer intervention program for children who need extra reading assistance in order to pass the Ohio Third Grade Reading Test. Students are identified for participation by teachers of partnering school districts. Placement is determined at the conclusion of second grade. Certified teachers help provide the reading support required to meet the needs of their cohort of students. Based on a 10:2 ratio, each child receives 40 hours of instruction. Success is then measured by the number of students who demonstrate improved literacy skilled based on a pre- and post-assessment.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

ABC Reading Ready is a two-week summer intervention program for children transitioning from kindergarten to first grade who are identified by the participating school district as reading below grade level. Staffing includes a lead teacher and a classroom aide. Certified teachers help provide the reading support required to meet the needs of their cohort of students. Success is then measured by the number of students who demonstrate improved literacy skilled based on a pre- and post-assessment.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Read 4 Fun is an interactive program held twice a year, beginning March 2, with Dr. Seuss's Birthday. More than 120 community volunteers celebrate by reading a Dr. Seuss book to Kindergarten through second grade classrooms in participating school districts throughout Trumbull County.
Each fall, second grade students enjoy story time with a volunteer reader, complete a craft themed to the story, enjoy a health snack and receive a book bag containing 3 to 5 books. This program is currently in all Warren City School Pk-8 buildings (Willard, Jefferson, Lincoln and McGuffey) and Badger elementary and LaBrae's Bascom Elementary. These two events reach nearly 3,300 students annually.

United Way of Trumbull County provides funding to 37 community based programs of 23 partner agencies that work to make positive changes in the areas of financial stability, education, health and basic needs.

Charting impact

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

We all benefit when a child succeeds in school, when someone finds a job that will help them provide for their family, when basic needs are met, or when more people are able to access quality, affordable health care. To make sure the common good is advanced are goals are as follows:
• Improve access to quality, affordable childcare and early learning opportunities
• Partner with schools and parents to improve graduation rates
• Provide after school and mentoring programs for at-risk youth
• Increase financial literacy for those managing limited resources
• Provide job training to ensure family sustaining wages
• Increase affordable housing for seniors and families
• Increase access to critical healthcare services
• Reduce substance abuse, childhood obesity and domestic violence
• Increase health education and preventative care
• Give individuals and families access to food
• Provide shelter for the homeless, veterans, domestic violence victims, and women with children

Our main strategies are to provide people in the community with a simple and convenient way to realize their philanthropic interest and to tackle big issues by working with local individuals and organizations to form community collaborations that come together to align resources and solve problems no single donor, non-profit, or government agency can accomplish alone.

• Because of United Way's positive brand and history of collaboration, we are uniquely positioned to serve as a catalyst to build a community where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
• UWTC also has a broad network of volunteers that are in tune with the issues of the local community and can make decisions based on priority.
• We also work with corporate partners on areas where their Social Corporate Responsibility align with our goals for maximum impact .
• UWTC has the support of hundreds of individuals, businesses, and foundations whose philanthropic interests align with our mission.

• 4,266 children participated in our Reading Great by 8 initiatives with all schools reporting improvement.
• 238,000 meals were provided to seniors, veterans, the disabled and others in need.
• 2,319 residents received $5,583 in refunds and fee savings through our free income tax programs.
• 1 in 3 residents access one or more services funded by UWTC in any given year.
• UWTC intends to increase delivery of services based on community requests and need.
• A number of new school districts have requested to be included in the Reading Great by 8 Initiative which has continued to grow and expand since its inception in 2014.
•School pantries have been funded and have opened or are in the process of opening in all 5 of the Warren City Schools.
