A JOINT MESSAGE FROM

THE BOARD CHAIR & PRESIDENT As we reflect on 75 years of Heart of Florida United Way’s impact on Central Florida and on our efforts of the past year, it is heart warming to see the progress that has been made in our communities. We should all feel an immense source of pride in the positive change United Way has brought to our neighborhoods. This is our opportunity to reflect on an amazing year and inspire one another to achieve even more moving forward. It is not enough to simply “keep the ball rolling.” We challenge all of us — staff, volunteers, donors, partner agencies and corporate supporters — to leap into this next stage motivated to fulfill our goal of helping all people achieve their full potential.

As far back as 1939 we knew working together was the best way to solve our community’s problems. Orlando Mayor Bob Carr forms the groundwork for what would become the Heart of Florida United Way, then termed Community Chest.

1939 4

2014-15 Annual Report pg 1-44-FINAL.indd 4

This has been a dynamic year and it is difficult to capture our accomplishments in just a few pages. But it’s a nice problem to have! We implemented innovative new programs to address our community’s biggest needs, such as the launch of Mission United to aid Central Florida’s veterans. We managed over $26 million across all four of our focus areas — education, income, health and basic needs — to help those in need and we demonstrated our strength as conveners and influencers of change. On behalf of Heart of Florida United Way, we thank our volunteers, donors and supporters who helped us serve hundreds of thousands of people across our community.

UNITED WAY AT WORK City Year Orlando

As one of the organizations responsible for bringing City Year to Orlando, United Way is especially proud of the impact this program has made on the region in its three years in the area. Heart of Florida United Way funded 10 City Year AmeriCorps members who served at Evans High School, where those members directly interacted with students and changed their lives. One of those students was Michael, a freshman struggling to deal with the demands of high school. With a 1.0 GPA and a below-average reading level, he was not where he needed to be to succeed and also had attendance issues. A City Year Orlando AmeriCorps member named Diane identified Michael and worked with him as a near-peer mentor to help him achieve his full potential. She pushed him to attend tutoring sessions and afterschool programs twice a week, and she set goals for him to help his attendance. She spent time with him each week to keep him motivated and focused. The results were staggering. Michael’s GPA went up. He became more engaged and participated in class. At the end of the year, he even earned an “A” in English—the first “A” of his academic career. Diane went above and beyond and her effort showed in Michael’s progress. For the first time, he realized that someone else saw potential in him. For the first time, he had hope for a better future. Michael has a second chance at life and it wouldn’t have been possible without City Year Orlando. 9

UNITED WAY AT WORK

Lighthouse Central Florida’s Job Readiness & Skills Program Unemployment is difficult for anyone, but for those with visual impairment, the struggle to find work and provide for their family is especially difficult. Lighthouse Central Florida’s United Way-funded Job Readiness and Skills program aims to help those who have lost their vision support their families and maintain a good job. Training includes using adaptive technology to allow blind persons to perform normal job functions and master different computer applications. By teaching different techniques, individuals are able to keep up their professional lives and establish a solid career. Karynn had been a nurse for 12 years, earning a good income. Due to a worsening eye condition, a complication from diabetes, Karynn’s vision was severely impaired, causing her to have to leave her job. She was referred to the United Way-funded Lighthouse Central Florida’s Job Readiness and Skills program so that she could learn new skills to make her more employable. Through the program, Karynn learned practical life skills as well, such as how to put together outfits, a difficult problem for those suffering from vision impairment. With Lighthouse Central Florida’s assistance, Karynn was able to get a job in a restaurant and is again a productive member of the workforce. “I’m not working in healthcare anymore, but I’m doing an honest day’s work which is so gratifying and my sense of independence has been restored,” said Karynn. “I’m thrilled to be part of a team, earning wages and feeling productive.”

UNITED WAY AT WORK Dental Care Access Foundation Fluoride Program

For most of us, going to the dentist or the doctor is a chore, but necessary. But, for too many in our community, routine medical or dental care is not an option due to cost and a lack of access. For children, not receiving care can lead to serious health problems and even impact their school performance due to health-related absences. The United Way-funded Dental Care Access Foundation’s Fluoride program addresses this by going directly to Orange County Public Schools. Through the program, they offer one-on-one dental education, where they teach proper dental hygiene, brushing tutorials and nutrition information. Each child is also provided with an age-appropriate dental hygiene kit, including a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss. Afterwards, they then apply a topical fluoride varnish to help prevent cavities from developing. Ryan was one student served by the program. At 8 years old, Ryan is the youngest of four children. His family struggles to make ends meet, and health care is low on the list of priorities. Ryan never owned his own toothbrush and instead shared one with his siblings. Through the United Way-funded fluoride program, Ryan had a fluoride treatment applied to his teeth to prevent cavities and received his own dental care packet — including a toothbrush of his very own — so he could maintain his teeth. The Dental Care Access Foundation also referred Ryan and his family to no-cost clinics for on-going care. Because of this program, issues were caught early, helping Ryan stay healthy and in school.

In Central Florida, nearly 20% of the population lives in poverty and another 30% are Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE). Among them are society’s most vulnerable: infants, children, seniors and the disabled. Others are those most deserving of our help: our nation’s veterans. These people are unable to afford basic needs like housing, healthcare, food, childcare and transportation.

BASIC NEEDS As a result of those impacted by United Way-funded programs in the Central Florida community:

97

%

of families who received help remained stable after 30 days

96

%

of seniors improved/ maintained physical & mental wellbeing

78

%

of clients increased their income

The effects of long-term poverty limit progress in other areas like education, healthcare and public safety – impacting the prosperity of the community as a whole. As the tri-county region’s largest funder of local hunger and homelessness programs, Heart of Florida United Way has distributed millions over the past five years to address and prevent these growing problems.

UNITED WAY AT WORK

Emergency & Homelessness Services Central Florida is home to 118,000 veterans; over forty percent of these veterans report difficulties finding employment, accessing and completing education, and securing and maintaining stable housing. Recent research shows that many of the issues veterans face arise not from a lack of assistance programs, but from a lack of collaboration, coordination, and collective purpose between myriad government and community offerings. Heart of Florida United Way’s Mission United connects our community and pre-existing programs to create a comprehensive system of care that positively impacts the lives of veterans and their families in Central Florida. By convening stakeholders and services, Mission United creates a centralized point of entry for veterans and their families to access services. Angel served in the Army for several years until he was honorably discharged. After returning to Central Florida from his time in Afghanistan, he struggled to find work and he was in danger of losing his house. His wife Diane did some research and discovered Mission United through United Way’s 2-1-1 Information and Assistance Helpline. Angel and Diane were put in touch with a case manager and assistance programs in the area. The assistance programs helped cover their mortgage costs and keep the utilities on while Angel and Diane looked for work. Now their family has stabilized and they are building a secure future. Mission United allowed them to keep their house while they got back on their feet and now they look forward to a white picket fence of their own.

DIRECT SERVICE & PROGRAMS When some people think about United Way’s impact, they think of fundraising. And that’s a significant part of the work we do. In 2014-2015, Heart of Florida United Way raised $26.1 million to fund strategic community programs that drive long-term change. But in addition to raising money on behalf of other nonprofits, United Way also provides direct services and runs programs that are vitally important to the Central Florida community.

United Way’s 2-1-1 Information and Assistance Helpline is the link between someone in distress and the help they need. This vital in-house resource is powerful enough to provide more than individual assistance on basic needs. Call specialists stand-by 24/7/365 to assist in suicide intervention, regional or national disasters.

Central Florida College Access Network (CFCAN) aims to increase the number of local residents with a high-quality credential or degree to keep up with the changing workforce. In addition to advocating for systemic change around FAFSA completion and financial aid, the CFCAN aims to reduce barriers to post-secondary education by providing information via texts through its Going2College Texting Project. Since the program’s launch in 2014, more than 680 students have registered and 24 institutions are participating, including University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Valencia College and Seminole State College.

United Way distributed free FamilyWize prescription drug cards. Accepted nationwide at over 60,000 pharmacies, the FamilyWize card provides an average savings of $20 per prescription. More than $2.4 million was saved by thousands of cardholders last year.

United Way VISTAs (Volunteers in Service to America) in Title I schools focused on recruiting volunteers to serve as role models to improve student attendance, behavior, course performance and college access. More than 4,500 students were served by the 1,208 volunteers recruited by the VISTAs, yielding close to 10,000 volunteer hours and $152,000 in donations.

For thousands of homeless students whose families are struggling with basic needs, like shelter and food, clothing is not a priority, but it is important. Heart of Florida United Way launched the Dress2Learn program to provide clothing to homeless students in Orange and Osceola counties. Close to 4,700 students were impacted by this program.

United Way’s Financial Stability Coalition assists low-to-moderate income families with free tax assistance and claiming the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). EITC is credited with lifting more children out of poverty than any other federal program. More than 2,100 EITC claims were filed at United Way’s sites, returning $6.8 million in credits. More than 54,397 tri-county residents facing impending homelessness, hunger and other emergencies received help through Emergency & Homelessness Services (EHS). 42,919 residents received emergency food and shelter support and 5,823 residents were able to keep their lights on through utility assistance. AmeriCorps Pathways to Success members provided academic support and college/career mentoring for 10th – 12th grade students attending Evans and Oak Ridge High Schools. The 21 AmeriCorps members provided 29,483 hours of service to ensure 468 students were on track and ready for their next step after graduation. United Way serves as the lead agency for Ryan White Part B/General Revenue, a Florida Department of Health funded program that provides care and support to HIV/AIDS consumers in Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Brevard counties. In 2014-15, United Way managed and distributed $2.1 million in funds to serve more than 4,600 consumers.

United Way is many things to many people. But really, the mission is simple: get people on pathways out of poverty, and help them from ever getting there in the first place. With thanks to many of your contributions during the 201415 Workplace Giving Campaign, our United Way has been able to do just that, by funding programs and providing direct service in the areas of education, income, health and basic needs. As a business community, we must invest and feel confident that our dollar goes far, but makes a big difference close to home with Heart of Florida United Way.

WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP COUNCIL

LEADERSHIP

“Women who mean business… for a good cause,” is how one Women’s Leadership Council member describes the notable group. Locally, more than 400 members combine philanthropy and volunteerism to make a remarkable impact on the Central Florida community. The Women’s Leadership Council is focused on education, particularly supporting early grade reading initiatives. Last year, the Council brought an online reader program to 10 Title-I schools, providing access to thousands of books to 6,304 students.

WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP LUNCHEON

The 2015 Women’s Leadership Luncheon keynote speaker, Cheryl Strayed, knows all about the power that reading and books can have on a life. After a chance encounter with a book about the Pacific Crest Trail, she took more than a bold step to conquer her demons and cope with the grief of losing her mother. She hiked over 1,000 miles. She recounted that journey in her best-selling book, Wild, and with more than 1,100 attendees at the 8th annual Women’s Leadership Luncheon. The sell-out crowd was inspired by Strayed’s candid connection to United Way’s work.

PHILANTHROPY When a person with influence stands up and says, “This is important,” others pay attention. That is what Leadership Giving is all about. Leadership Donors support the community with annual gifts of $1,000 or more, and in doing so, they make a declaration that supporting United Way is not a casual act, it is something of real importance. More than 2,500 Leadership Donors contributed a combined total of $4,591,389 last year. Their commitment has a real impact on the community in that it provides critical funding while setting an example for others to follow.

ADVOCATE Advocacy is about championing a cause. It’s about taking time to understand the issues, educating the community and motivating action on important issues. United Way is focused on serving as a voice for those who are seldom heard – children, the elderly, veterans and those who are down on their luck. Achieving real, sustained change in community conditions requires the engagement of everyday citizens, as well as policy leaders and decision makers at the local, state and national level. Through the work of our supporters, we have begun to move the needle for veterans through Mission United and for the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) population. 32

MISSION UNITED Launched in June 2015, Mission United is a collective effort that addresses the complicated and fragmented systems for veteran services currently in place. It is a community collaboration that serves as a central contact for veterans to access community support, ensuring that service members and their families are never more than two steps from the help they need. Mission United identifies gaps and creates systemic change in the areas of legal assistance, employment and education.

30% ALICE

More than 203,000 tri-county households fall into what United Way calls the ALICE population (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed). These are households earning more than the U.S. poverty level, but less than the basic cost of living. Nearly 50% of Central Florida families do not earn enough to consistently cover the basic living expenses highlighted by the ALICE threshold. This is a population that United Way has been serving for over 75 years, but awareness and advocacy efforts have brought business and community leaders together to begin to identify workable and sustainable solutions for affordable housing, childcare, healthcare and access to transportation that can help bring stability to the ALICE population. 35

The 23rd annual Day of Caring, a massive, one-day volunteer effort, featured projects like building garden vegetable boxes for seniors, serving meals to the homeless, reading to students and painting homes for low-income, first-time homebuyers. In all, our region’s leading companies and organizations took part and showed our community once again what we can do when we LIVE UNITED.

Access to books is a major factor in summer slide, the gradual decline of reading skills over the summer months. With the help of the community, United Way collected more than 30,000 books to hand out to children as part of Day of Action, a one-day community-wide volunteer event focused on promoting literacy. More than 400 volunteers participated in fun interactive literacy related activities and helped to distribute books to 2,556 kids in need. Research shows that by reading just 4 books over the break, students can maintain or even build their reading skills. Day of Action provided 6 books to low-income students to read all year long.
