Grants to Indiana public and private nonprofits for health and human services that provide for the needs of the Steuben County community. Funding is intended to support programs and projects that promote educational and financial development, as well as the health and health care coverage, of local populations in fulfillment of current United Way goals, as detailed below.
Goal: In 2008, United Way Worldwide launched a 10-year initiative to cut the number of high school dropouts in half by 2018.
Strategy: The strategies proven to work are those that connect communities to their schools: parent involvement; literacy volunteers in the classroom; mentors for disadvantaged students; business leaders engaged in early childhood advocacy.
Goal: In 2008, United Way initiated an ambitious 10-year plan to cut in half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable and help 1.9 million working families get on the road to economic independence by 2018.
Strategy: The Financial Stability Partnership™ is an initiative that promotes community-change strategies to help families meet their basic needs, while gaining the financial capability to plan for, and accomplish, their long-term financial goals.
Goal: Since 2008, the United Way has been working to achieve a bold, 10-year goal: to increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors by 2018.
Strategy: Achieving this goal requires greater aware of health risks and the potential effects they have on ourselves and others, starting from before birth. Working to change policies and practices, such as extending health care coverage, will enable more people to live healthier lives.
