Building educational success
United Way’s goal is to enable all children to succeed in their educational journey. This happens when we instill a love of learning by giving them access to books, prepare them for kindergarten, and provide the tools to get them to high school graduation. United Way’s education pathway strategically builds a child’s chances for educational success, and combats the challenges that often impede that progress.
