31,000 Served in 2016-17
In 2019, United Way of the Midlands renewed Community Impact grants totaling almost $3.5 million to nonprofit organizations serving the Midlands. The continuing grants will support a range of programs that meet basic human service needs -  like shelter for homeless youth, dental and eye care and other programs that contribute to self-sufficiency. The new grants support United Way’s focus on early childhood literacy - to make sure children are READY to learn when they enter kindergarten, READING on grade level by third grade and SUCCEEDING in middle school and beyond; the new Youth in Transition Initiative that focuses on providing resources for a growing population of homeless youth ages 17 - 24; and access to health care, including dental and eye care for the uninsured or underinsured, and leading the fight against hunger and food insecurity for senior adults who do not have the resources to sustain healthy lifestyles.
