EDUCATIONAL SUCCESS - CRADLE TO CAREER

 ACTION  NOW  SUMMIT II

"YOU SPOKE, WE HEARD, YOUR COMMUNITY RESPONDED"

Tri-City Area United Way believes that every child born has the right to achieve their human potential and succeed in life. We envision a world where all individuals and families achieve that potential through education, financial stability and healthy lives.

At the first Action Now Summit, three task forces were formed to focus on these major concerns: Substance Abuse, Educational Opportunity, Parenting Education.


Community members identified root causes and developed ACTION PLANS to resolve these issues.
These ACTION PLANS will be implemented in 2015.
