United Way is dedicated to improving the health, education, and financial stability of the people in our community, by working to move families with young children out of the traps of poverty and down an open road to success.

WSIPC and United Way have been working together for years to improve the lives of the families and students in our community. We are proud to support United Way and the valuable work they do. WSIPC was created to support our community. To provide affordable solutions so our schools can focus on educating our students. We are dedicated to improving our community in every way we can, and our support for United Way is a big part of who we are and what we strive to achieve.

Creating Open Roads to Equity (CORE)

Locally, United Way is changing the conversation around poverty. CORE is a bold new collaborative approach that moves whole families out of the traps of poverty by serving the entire family, holistically.

United Way’s CORE teams of community partners focus on 5 key areas of success:
  • Childhood education access
  • Secondary education and employment pathways
  • Increased positive peer / community networks
  • Increased economic assets
  • Health and well-being of whole family (mental and physical health)

United Way and its partners measure success in lives changed. Watch this inspiring video to see the impact the CORE program can have for a family:


Stories like these are a testament to the difference that communities can make when we come together to create lasting change. To find out how you or your district can help United Way in their mission to strengthen our community, visit their website today.
