Take Action to Change the Odds

Get informed. Champion the Cause.

Metro United Way's vision is a community whose people achieve their fullest potential through education, financial stability and healthy lives - the building blocks of a good life. Studies show that quality education leads to better income and a healthier life; the human price, as well as the economic impact, is staggering when children don't succeed in school. What can you do to help? Lend your voice and take action because you can be the difference.

47% of our children are not ready to learn when they enter kindergarten; 32% of 3rd graders can't read at grade level. One in 4 high school students will not graduate on time and almost 1,200 in our community will drop out this year. Together, our community is changing these odds and YOU can be a part of the change.

Demonstrate your support for children and families. If we are serious about reducing poverty, achieving greater equity, family stability, and increasing economic growth for our community, investing in our children and their educational success is imperative. There are many ways to get involved by raising your voice and lending a hand. Start today by taking the Change the Odds pledge and LIVE UNITED.
