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 community-led solutions.
In 2020, United Way of Siouxland provided over 34,000 services through 64 local programs. This year, we are on track to continue this amazing impact. So far in 2021, you have helped support 30 programs and initiatives through the Siouxland Community Impact Process, an additional 25 programs through our Le Mars outreach and 7 youth-serving programs through Women United®. In addition, two local organizations, the Norma Waitt Sr. YMCA and Siouxland Christian Preschool were awarded grants to help address the childcare shortage in Siouxland.
Our dedicated community volunteers make funding decisions based on continuous evaluation of programs and services using data driven results to assure that impact is being made toward community goals outlined in our Agenda for Change.
