Success Stories

When Susie wanted to join Girls Scouts, like all the other girls in her third grade class, the United Way was there to fund programming, transportation and access to a troop leader who has become a vital part of Susie's world and socialization, integrating and collaborating with other girls her own age, from different neighborhoods, has opened a new world for Susie that might not have been possible without United Way funding.
