WHO WE ARE
HOW WE WORK
WE ARE CREATING BOLD COMMUNITY CHANGE IN EDUCATION / FINANCIAL STABILITY / HEALTH
Together, we are working to:
Improve educational outcomes for all students. Every child will be supported from birth, to be prepared for school, meet grade-level standards and graduate from high school prepared for employment or higher education.
Improve the opportunity for all people to enjoy a quality standard of living. Our neighbors have an opportunity and the tools for personal advancement; from crisis, to financial stability, to self-sufficiency.
Improve the health of all individuals. Our neighbors will have access to healthcare, know how to lead healthy lives and be empowered to live and participate in environments that promote good health.
Trident United Way works to make real, long-lasting change through collective impact, a systematic approach in which many partners agree in advance on how they will approach the issue at hand and how they will determine success.
These collaborations require a backbone organization to manage the partnership and ensure communication among the partners. Trident United Way often plays that backbone role.
