OUR IMPACT

  • Today, Metro United Way financially supports more nonprofits than we ever have in our 106-year history.

  • There are 140 organizations alone in our youth success network that we provide grassroots capacity building, mental health support, improved digital access, tutoring hours, and training and professional development.

  • Because 80% of brain growth happens by age 3 and 90% before age 5, we lead a collaboration of 100+ early care and education organizations to ensure kids enter kindergarten ready to learn. We know that if they do, they are more likely to succeed in school, work, and life.

  • Just in the first six months of this year, 85% of families we’ve served in our homelessness and school instability work have reached income stability, 89% have reached housing stability, and fewer than 1% of families have had to make an unplanned move during the school year.

  • There is continued positive bipartisan engagement and support for our public policy agenda at the local, state, and federal levels—a testament to how we truly unite our community.

  • Almost 42,000 people contacted our 2-1-1 helpline last year to seek emergency assistance and referral for housing, transportation, food, child care, clothing, and other needs.

  • Our United Community platform connects more than 500 social service, government, and health care providers to deliver integrated, holistic care through a shared technology platform. It has served more than 17,000 individuals and made more than 32,000 referrals.

  • More than 10,000 people have attended our Racial Wealth Gap Simulation or Beyond Buzzwords speaker series on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
