UNITED WAY'S RESPONSE:

We will increase access to underserved children by providing sliding fee scales and encouraging a focus on equity. 

We will support parents in their role of being their kids’ first teachers. 

We will increase access for out-of-school learning and proven intervention strategies. 

We will educate community members on issues of impact and empower them with tools to take action.
