Where Your Dollars Go

Contributions to United Way Community Investment during the 2017 Community Campaign improved lives and helped create positive change for residents in central and northeastern Connecticut. We’ve invested $7 million in programs and partnerships in our community, including:

  • Nearly $4 million to provide children with early childhood education, improve grade-level reading skills and ensure middle grade students have the academic skills needed for high school success
  • More than $1 million to connect individuals with skills and training for jobs in our region as well as the financial coaching services and supports to achieve their goals
  • Nearly $2 million to provide access to information and referral services and immediate assistance such as food, shelter, disaster relief and services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault
