Responding to Local Needs...The United Way
Confirmed by data in the United Way's 130-page Community Assessment report, three areas of need have been identified as critical in Montgomery, Greene and Preble Counties: Children, Youth and Families ; Positive Living/Vulnerable Populations ; and Community Capacity . Focus areas such as basic needs, life skills and access to services have been approved by the United Way Board of Directors to guide the volunteers when making funding decisions for the next three years.
The volunteers will use the three priority areas to decide how to balance supporting growing needs in our community while maintaining the current network of services.
Each year these choices are harder to make as the needs increase and the amount of available funds decreases, said Marc Levy, President, United Way of the Greater Dayton Area; We are building a framework that will ensure those who are most vulnerable in our community get the help they need.
