Education

United Way is working to end America’s education crisis.

Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. But with more than 1.2 million children dropping out each year, America faces an education crisis. The cost? More than $312 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivity over their lifetimes. These trends are reversible, but only when communities and public, private and nonprofit sectors work together.

Harvey County United Way is helping individuals achieve their potential by:

  • Improving access to affordable, quality child care and early childhood learning opportunities to improve kindergarten readiness.
  • Partnering with schools and parents to improve student success rates.
  • Providing after-school, mentoring and leadership programs for children and teens.

2016 – 2017 Funded Programs – 12% of Community Investment funding:
