Strong Neighborhoods. Strong Families.

Real change starts with understanding where people come from, addressing disparities and strengthening neighborhoods in partnership with its residents.  

United Way of Greater Stark County believes that we must disrupt the vicious cycle of disinvestment and displacement which damage the vitality of communities of families with low or even no income.  

Every dollar invested in high-quality early care and education can yield up to $12 in better outcomes in health, public safety, economic productivity, and education.  

United Way of Greater Stark County and community organizations:

  • Work to focus efforts to children and families most at risk for remaining or becoming poor
  • Support single parent families, especially those headed by females  
  • Work within the neighborhoods which positively affects entire communities

It takes the community to work together to alleviate the impacts of poverty on our children!
