United Way Worldwide Community Conversations Report
In 2012, United Ways around the world sat down for conversations with community members about building the opportunity to thrive for everyone: what it means, how much opportunity we have and what we need to do so that more in our community can thrive. We were excited to participate in these conversations. The final report shows a strong commonality in what people all around the world are saying. It connects strongly to our new focus on breaking the cycle of poverty for children and families in our community.
Domestic Violence Inventory
Nationally, one in four women and one in seven men experience domestic/partner violence in their lifetime. When so many live in unsafe homes, it affects our whole community.
In 2010, United Way completed this inventory of domestic violence and available services to combat it in the four-county area. Together, we can work to prevent and respond to domestic violence in our community.
United Way released a comprehensive report on our impact in the community from 2004-2009. The Community Impact Results Report gives readers insight into how, with your support, we helped change the lives of 100,000 people over the previous five years.
It also shows how through smart collaborative funding relationships with foundations and other organizations, we were able to leverage $22.5 million in contributions into an impressive $41.3 million impact in our community. We invite you to read through the report online today.
