The "Community Impact Model" for community change is cenetered around the idea, that we can accomplish much more when we work together on a common issue then we could ever accomplish seperately. It is United Way's role to mobilize organizations, businesses, and volunteers around kindergarten readiness and literacy. We accomplish this by working with local entities to provide programming, outreach, and education to our diverse communities.
Below is a listing of the current programs that United Way is partnering with to increase the number of students in our community that are "ready for kindergarten" which will impact our long term goal of all students reading at grade level by 3rd grade.
All Our Kids Network - Parent Cafe'
Boys and Girls Club- Reading is Essential
Freeport School District - It Takes a Village
United Way's - Born Learning Initiative
