Measurable Results Drive Change
You are the key to our success.
Creating the foundation for a strong community takes all of us, working in partnership, tracking progress and producing measurable results. The most efficient way to make the strides needed in our community is by leveraging our combined resources – knowledge, time, materials, and money. United Way is bringing people to the table to develop and execute strategies that will have the biggest impact.

With finite and possibly shrinking resources available to all nonprofits we can achieve economies of scale by looking across boundaries for solutions and embracing teamwork.
Data Drives Action
By setting goals and monitoring progress we can more quickly influence change in a positive direction and correct our course when needed. Leveraging the successes of others and replicating processes that work allow us to bring the right supports to the right people as quickly as possible.
