Community Impact:
2015 Outcomes Report
At United Way, we advance the common good by focusing on education, income, and
health, the building blocks for a good quality of life. In Cass County, this means providing the opportunity for every child to enter kindergarten ready to learn, supporting public transportation that ensures all citizens can get where they need to go, and making certain that everyone has access to nutrition and physical fitness programs. By addressing these and other root causes of larger problems, we will make long term, positive change in our community.

In 2015
  • We made progress toward our goals in education, income, and health by working together with our member agencies, volunteers, donors, and board of directors. It takes everyone in the community, working together. to create a brighter future.
  • Over an 18 month period, we met with 32 groups across Cass County and asked them to share their aspirations and concerns about Cass County. This "community knowledge" has been incorporated into everything we do.
