United Way’s partnerships with elementary schools are one of the most effective methods of aligning the caring power of adults with children and families in need. Schools provide a trusted environment for families that is local, friendly and consistently safe. In a time when families are struggling with isolation, schools remain a lifeline to a broader community.
When United Way partners with schools,
- volunteers connect with children in a safe, structured environment.
- Nonprofit organizations share their services more effectively.
- Families receive the support they need in an environment where they are already comfortable.
Addressing the challenges of today’s families often begins by meeting them where they are. United Way & Schools are working together to do just that.
