Lasting change only happens when we work together. And part of that is uniting our voices—speaking up and speaking out. We educate public officials on how education, income and health policies impact our community and advocate to expand opportunities for generations.
Prevented Child Abuse
Home visits are one of the only proven methods to prevent maltreatment. We got a big victory when H.O.P.E.S and Nurse-Family Partnership secured $1.5 million and $2.9 million respectively for the next biennium. This additional funding will allow these programs to expand their services on top of their current caseloads.
Advocacy at UWMD
Throughout the year, United Way advocates for policy priorities at all levels of government that advance the attainment of our community goals. We work to mobilize multiple sectors locally and statewide to encourage decision makers to adopt better, more common sense policies.
