Organization Information

Mission Statement

To provide leadership that improves lives and creates lasting community change by mobilizing the caring people of our communities to give, advocate, and volunteer. Serves DeSoto, Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Sarasota Counties.

Description

United Way Suncoast Strategic Plan is to " Break the cycle of generational poverty through educational programs that give children the skills to succeed and help adults achieve long-term financial stability so they can support themselves and their families."

Working together with volunteers, agency partners, community leaders and key stakeholders, the plan focuses on three priority impact areas:
  • Early Literacy - If a child isn’t reading at grade level by 4th grade, s/he is four times more likely to drop out of school.
  • Youth Success - A child who doesn’t graduate from high school earns 75% less than peers who do.
  • Financial Stability - Building financial knowledge and employability skills help create more stable and secure households and communities.

In addition, we will continue funding aligned Support Services (health, food, shelter, etc) to help hard working individuals and families move past immediate crisis that may prevent them from participating in United Way programs that address their long-term needs.
