Links to Success

Links to Success 2.0 Initiative

Trident United Way is creating bold community change by ensuring students in high poverty schools receive essential behavioral, health and financial support to succeed in school. In partnership with Essential Service Providers students at our Links To Success 2.0 elementary and middle schools will receive behavioral counseling, nutritional meals, and emergency financial assistance so that they can thrive in the classroom.

Over the course of the next three years (July 2016-June 2019), Trident United Way will invest nearly $1.2 million to our Links To Success 2.0 Essential Service Providers. Overall, this represents about 10 percent of our Community Impact portfolio. We are proud to partner with our schools, school districts, and funded partners so that our children receive core social and emotional support.
