The K.E.N. Fund, The King – Elaines’ Nobility Scholarship Fund
We have set up a memorial scholarship fund in KJ Rhodes' name, called The K.E.N. Fund, The King – Elaines’ Nobility Scholarship Fund to honor his life and legacy.
When families are stable, our community is stronger. One way that Metro United Way helps individuals strengthen their families is through a partnership with the Siemer Institute; this program works to prevent family homelessness and reduce school mobility so that families gain financial security and their children can succeed in school.
The Siemer Institute Partnership accomplished amazing things in 2021.
224 families were served, representing 483 children, 398 of whom were school-aged
75% of families were able to achieve or maintain a level of housing stability
70% were able to achieve or maintain a level of income stability
Only 3% had to make an unplanned or unsupported school move during the academic year
