Capital Area United Way understands the urgency of addressing development in the first five years of life and is making a 10-year commitment to early childhood education. United Way’s Impact Cabinet is developing a plan to achieve our goal: children enter school ready to learn. As a result, we expect to see improved early literacy, higher graduation rates, a developed workforce, a decrease in crime, and a stronger future. It will take the whole community: businesses, government, non-profits, healthcare, and educational systems will need to collaborate to give, advocate, and volunteer for lasting change.
United Way is proud to collaborate with a range of individuals and groups to achieve our goal of children entering school ready to learn. We have been fortunate to gather an outstanding team for our Impact Cabinet.
