Strengthening our children's future TOGETHER

United Way Community Schools are at the forefront of leveling the playing field for identified schools with a high poverty rate.



 
The Model of Success:
  • Engaged school district leadership
  • School principal leading the vision and process at each site
  • Community School director, employed by a community-based organization or institution of higher education, working full-time in the school
  • Site-based leadership team comprised of parents, educators, community and business partners
  • Facility access before, during and beyond school hours
