OUR COMMUNITY INVESTMENT PROCESS AND COMMUNITY IMPACT

Working with engaged community members to allocate funds to programs and projects that work to improve the health, education and financial stability of EVERY person in EVERY community we serve. 

Community Investment Process and Funding

Working Together to Build Stronger Communities.

We believe in comprehensive solutions to combat our region’s most pressing issues. Through our community investment process, local nonprofits and agencies can apply for funding to help us reach a common goal of bettering our communities.  Every program funded through Head of the Lakes United Way is monitored, evaluated and measured for effectiveness. In this way, HLUW validates that investments get results and make a difference where it matters most.

IMPACT AREAS

Health

By making it easier for individuals to access substance abuse programs, receive quality health care and access nutritious foods, we’re striving to help everyone get—and stay—healthy.

Education

We’re striving to shift the odds so tomorrow’s leaders can build a better foundation today. With an approach to education that spans from cradle to career, we’re ensuring every child gets a strong start in life, teenagers have the tools to learn and grow, and young adults thrive in the job market.

Financial Stability

We’re striving to put every person, in every community, on a path toward financial empowerment. That starts with access to housing,  job training, credit counseling and money management programs.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS & AGENCIES
