Vision: A Dane County where everyone can succeed in school, work and life.
Mission: Unite the community to create measurable results and change lives.
Poverty can affect children’s development, academic success, overall health, and lifetime earning potential. Approximately 64,000 Dane County residents live in poverty and 15,000 of them are children. United Way of Dane County currently reaches just one third of these individuals, and we know that we can do more together.
Together with our partners, United Way of Dane County has been able to achieve results on family stability and mobility from poverty using evidence-informed strategies, data-based decision making, and community engagement through the Agenda for Change.
Below are a few of our Signature Initiatives and results in each area of the Agenda for Change.
