MISSOURI SLOPE AREAWIDE UNITED WAY 2019 Annual Report to the Community


LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR Jena Gullo, Executive Director Missouri Slope Areawide United Way jgullo@msaunitedway.org

Wow, it has been a fast 10 years - an exciting 10 years - at United Way. Bismarck-Mandan sure is different and our United Way has evolved with it. Our goal this past decade has been to work with our partners to provide lasting solutions to the most pressing issues in our community. School officials reported that families were falling through the cracks. Kids in poverty had low attendance rates, low reading proficiency rates, and were entering kindergarten far behind their peers, having a domino effect on their life. Seventy-one percent of our youth didn’t have a positive role model. Behaviors in school were on the rise. Kids were acting out more than ever. United Way began prioritizing a more proactive approach to break the cycle of poverty – saving Neighbors Network by becoming their sole funder for years, targeting early childhood development by bringing in new partners with evidenced-based programs, and even helping to bring Restorative Justice to Simle Middle School (now all middle schools) in our community. We developed a mentoring program called Adopt-a-Classroom, making it so easy to volunteer. Kids no longer have to worry about where their next meal will come from over the weekends or throughout the summer. Hundreds of thousands of books are now in the homes of tens of thousands of local preschoolers. You’ve sheltered the homeless when there was nowhere else for people in crisis to turn. We’ve opened a permanent emergency shelter, all while continuing our commitment to highquality community programs. We have raised more than $25,555,000 and have supported more than 40 nonprofits in accomplishing their mission – programs that fill big needs in our community. So many things are going right in our nonprofit sector, but unfortunately, the poor in our community have a near impossible chance of changing their circumstances or accessing the help they need. There’s more work to be done. While we’ve broken the cycle of poverty and abuse for some, it’s time to take it to scale. Our Center for Opportunity will do just that. It’s a game-changer for our community. I’ll end on this… Every morning and every night, I look into the eyes of my sweet baby boy, and I see love, hope, and possibility. I hope that I’m enough, that I can give him more than he could ever need, and that his life is full of opportunity. I imagine most parents feel that same way, but too often don’t have the means. I’ve seen the heartache and worry on the faces of many moms staying at our shelter. Let’s work together on giving all parents the tools they deserve so their kids have a life full of open doors and possibilities. Let’s level the playing field for kids and be there for them in a real way. With your help, we can do this while continuing to support vital programs that provide a high quality of life for all.

BOLD SOLUTIONS

BUILD COMMUNITIES The past decade charted a more intentional path for MSA United Way. Historically a driver in fundraising, United Way made a big impact in program and agency operations throughout Bismarck-Mandan. It became evident, however, that being everything to everyone wasn’t creating measurable change. In 2011, “United Way…Much More Than A Fundraiser” was a key message used to begin moving the needle on social issues. It spoke to the past, where success was measured almost solely by the money raised and alluded to a future with a proactive approach to addressing the community’s most pressing issues. MSA United Way’s Community Impact Committee developed a process which brought together more than 50 volunteers to review needs assessments and determine community priorities, score applications and work with partners to develop long-term solutions.

3


Today, United Way continues to support partner agencies and explores ways to bring them together, align community initiatives and create lasting change. Unfortunately, critical gaps in human services remain, and MSA United Way steps up to address immediate and often dire needs. A shelter closes – United Way builds a permanent emergency homeless shelter with quality services. Kids go hungry over the weekends – United Way pulls people together to end weekend hunger. Problems are solved, but the need doesn’t disappear. A community this size will always need a well-run homeless shelter, and, with it now opening 24/7, we can check that off of our priority list with your continued support. However, we can do more. By working to bring necessary assistance from across the community directly to those in need, we can provide a pathway out of poverty. We rely heavily on the expertise of our partner agencies. We can’t do this alone. While we have focused more on problem-solving and impact these last 10 years, our mission remains the same: We unite people and resources to build a better community. We will do this by continuing to find bold solutions for lasting change.

ENDING HUNGER IN BISMARCKMANDAN

A

fter discovering that kids were going hungry over the weekend and coming to school dizzy and distracted, United Way stepped

in to fill the gap. Businesses and generous community members sponsor, pack, and deliver more than 1,400 backpacks of food so local students don’t go hungry on the weekends. Department of Public Instruction reported that only 7 percent of children in need are being reached with meals during the summer months. This was alarming to us, and we knew something had to be done immediately. Bismarck and Mandan Public Schools felt the same way and wanted to prepare meals. We work together to ensure that no child goes hungry over the summer.

HOW UNITED WAY HELPED IN 2019: • 480 volunteers recruited and coordinated to serve 33,211 meals in ten parks throughout the summer. • 148,434 meals provided through the United Way Backpack Program to end weekend hunger. • $216,900 invested in hunger-relief programs, including meals for the elderly, The Banquet to support expansion of their evening meals, Ministry on the Margin’s Food Pantry, Underwood’s Community Cupboard, and Great Plains Food Bank’s food recovery program. 7

BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY

J

ennifer, originally from a rural town outside of Bismarck, lost her job and soon found

herself living in her car with her 8 and 10-yearold daughters. It became difficult to get her girls to school, and, with no options in sight, Jennifer and the girls made their way to Bismarck in hope of finding a safe place to stay at United Way’s Homeless Shelter. They received warm meals, toiletries, and immediate assistance in getting the girls registered for school. Jennifer was connected with multiple agencies to help her get back on her feet. After spending the holidays at the shelter, Jennifer and her family secured a place of their own and are rebuilding a life in Bismarck.

18

-year-old Jacob arrived at the shelter distraught and discouraged. He did not have a stable upbringing and

was without a support system at home. More than anything, he wanted to secure a job and live independently. With the help and resources of United Way and its partners, Jacob is now employed and lives in his own apartment. Coordinated and consistent efforts like this within the Center for Opportunity result in easy access to services and an opportunity for clients to live independent, healthy lives.

HOW UNITED WAY HELPED IN 2019:

• Sheltered 490 men, women and children at United Way’s Emergency Homeless Shelter.

• Opened a permanent homeless shelter

• Provided 35,131 nights of shelter together with our community partners.

• Secured funds to open the shelter 24/7 at the start of the new year.

for our community. 10


LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD

A

focus on early childhood development is critical in preparing kids for success in life. If children aren’t reading proficiently

by the end of the third grade, they are four times more likely to not graduate from high school on time. A child is 90 percent more likely to remain a poor reader at the end of the fourth grade if he or she is a poor reader at the end of the first grade. Children from low-income families are at greater risk for entering school unprepared. According to a national longitudinal analysis by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, economically disadvantaged children may know only one or two letters of the alphabet when entering kindergarten, while children in the middle class will know all 26. Confidence is lost, and school becomes frustrating for these kids as they fall further behind, thus amplifying the problem. Equipping children with the tools needed to be prepared for kindergarten is one way we can help break the cycle of poverty. MSA United Way supports programs like BECEP, Healthy Families, CREA, and HeadStart, as well as literacy programs like ND Reading Corps, to help give all children a jump start & set them up for success in school.

11


HOW UNITED WAY HELPED IN 2019: • Mailed 47,963 books to 4,022 local children through our Dolly Parton Imagination Library. • 77 percent improved reading scores and 78 percent improved math scores after receiving case management support. • 284 kids and adults participated in Adopt-a-Classroom and Parents United.

LEADING HAPPY, ACTIVE LIVES

M

abel, 88-years-young, was born and raised in Bismarck, ND. She no longer has family living in

the area, leaving her with little social interaction or help at home. Rebuilding Together volunteers stepped in to make necessary repairs to her home and Burleigh County Senior Center delivers meals to Mabel throughout the winter when it’s difficult for her to venture out. She also receives frequent visits from a volunteer at the LSS Senior Companion Program. When the weather warms up, Mabel stays active by enjoying bingo and coffee at the local senior center and takes part in the YMCA Parkinson’s Program. Mabel and hundreds of other Bismarck-Mandan seniors lead active, healthy lives with the support of United Way partners and your contributions.

HOW UNITED WAY HELPED IN 2019: • 497 seniors were able to stay in their homes because of United Way funded services.

• 729 seniors received health maintenance services in Mandan.

• 68 people were helped this year through the YMCA Live Strong Program.

• 40 individuals participated in the Parkinson’s Wellness Program. 14
