United Way of Susquehanna County Announces Community Impact Funded Nonprofit Agencies

United Way of Susquehanna County (UWSC) has completed its annual allocation process thanks to the dedicated community volunteers. They donated their time and expertise in evaluating the nonprofit application requests for funding as part of the Community Impact Model, which places greater emphasis on outcome measurements that demonstrate measurable improvement over time. Through the generosity of United Way donors, nonprofit agencies serving Susquehanna County residents can carry out their work, improving the lives of children and their families. UWSC continues to advance its Helping Children Do Well initiative by supporting evidence-based programs to help at-risk children thrive by providing tools they need to succeed in school and life, along with safety net programs for the most vulnerable on our community.

UWSC Allocation Committee members include Terri Allen, Ruth Burke, Joel Levy, Cassidy Robinson, and Kim Smith.

  • B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging
  • Maternal and Family Health Services
  • Northern Tier Industry and Education Consortium
  • Susquehanna County 4-H

In July 2015, UWSC announced its transition to the Community Impact Model, placing a stake in the ground around targeted priorities leading to real change. The UWSC volunteer Advisory Committee determined that UWSC would focus on funding initiatives that “Help Children Do Well,” specifically, programs that address improving access to high-quality early education and childhood wellness promote family stability and mentorship. UWSC will continue to fund safety net services as defined as emergency aid provided to individuals and families who face an immediate threat to their well-being as a result of a crisis.
