United Way of Siouxland creates solutions to build a stronger Siouxland. We fight for the health, education and financial stability for every person in every community. But we don't do it alone. We fund programs and initiatives with community partners who are engaged with us to advance communtiy-led solutions.
In 2016, United Way of Siouxland provided over 50,000 services through 83 local programs. This year, we are on track to continue this amazing impact. So far in 2017, you have helped support 30 programs and initiatives through the Siouxland Community Impact Process, an additional 31 programs through our Le Mars outreach and six youth-serving programs through Women United®. We also recently awarded three brand new FOCUS Grants to programs improving the financial stability and health of our community and ten scholarships have been awarded to single parents at-tending local colleges. Because of your generosity we will continue the Small Grants program throughout the year which will provide a jump-start to innovative programs.
Our dedicated community volunteers make funding decisions based on continuous evaluation of programs and services using data driven resultes to assure that impact is being made toward community goals outlined in our Agenda for Change.
