From funding agencies to affecting change
In May, 2015 United Way of Lancaster County enhanced its investment process, holding exciting promise for investors, grant recipients and our community. Moving from funding agencies to fostering change. These 10-year goals are not United Way’s goals; they are our community’s goals. Franklin & Marshall College’s Center for Opinion Research helped us reach out to residents, nonprofit service providers, United Way investors and community leaders to paint a vision for the future.
We zeroed in on four long-term, BOLD GOALS. Imagine this! A Lancaster County in 2025 where:
- 100% of our children will enter kindergarten ready to learn.
- 100% of students and adults will have post-secondary credentials.
- Decrease individuals and families living in poverty by 50%.
- 100% of individuals, children, and families will have a medical home.
