United Way of Lake County's mission is to unite leadership and resources to create lasting change that will improve lives in Lake County.
United Way of Lake County is preparing our children to succeed in a changing world by focusing on education and building safe and stable families.
Working with nonprofit agencies and community partners, United Way has identified four key programs to prepare children to succeed:
-Success By 6 Program – prepare for kindergarten
-Reading Success Program – read at grade level
-Stay in School Program – graduate high school
-Safe and Stable Families Program – empowering families
United Way recognizes safe and stable families are the foundation for a child’s success.Their programs and services are focused on children and families achieving self-sufficiency, which is vital to developing a healthy community.
By giving our children a solid educational foundation focusing on preventive programs, United Way is helping to grow a stronger Lake County community.
