The "Community Impact Model" for community change is centered around the idea that we can accomplish much more when we work together on a common issue then we could ever accomplish separately. It is United Way's role to mobilize organizations, businesses, and volunteers around the identified health and human service needs to improve the quality of life in our area. We accomplish this by working with local partners to provide programming, outreach, and education in our diverse communities.
In 2018/2019 our Community Impact Initiative Partners included:
The Boys and Girls Club of Stephenson County
YMCA Children's Center
Stephenson County Public Health Foundation through the AOK Network
FHN Foundation in partnership with Salvation Army and NICAA Senior Services
