A Message from the Chair Onslow County, North Carolina. What a great place to live. We all have much to be thankful for. Undoubtedly, we have experienced our share of challenges…natural disasters such as tornadoes, a hurricane and wild fires over the past year. We also have had to deal with economic uncertainty and more so in our community, the deployment of our friends, neighbors and loved ones. For me, with all we have dealt with as a community over the past year, the beauty in all of it has been how we have turned to one another for support and to find strength. We are learning our neighbors’ names, providing guidance to those who live in uncertainty and looking after those who need us the most. The United Way of Onslow County…your United Way has always been about caring people coming together to help others in need and to look for the right solution concerning our community’s toughest challenges. Your United Way remains steadfast in our effort to strengthen lives, help people, and improve our local community. We continue to build channels for both financial and information resources to make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of our community citizens in need. The typical annual report trumpets the accomplishments of an organization, but that only tells part of the story. The United Way of Onslow County is a strong and effective agent for community change because of the support of you—individual donors, businesses, volunteers and partners. It was you who helped neighbors in need after April 16, 2011. The tornadoes that ripped through the Piney Green area left a path of destruction that a movie could hardly portray. Yet, you stepped up and provided money, food, clothing, your time, your tools and your talent to assist your neighbors who had been through this devastating storm. It was you who helped raise more awareness about homelessness in Onslow County. You gave your money and time to organizations like CAN-DO. Your efforts have and are helping more people leave homelessness and rebuild their lives. It was you who prepared more kids to succeed in school—and in life. You surrounded struggling families with support, showed moms and dads how to help their kids thrive and kept kids safe and healthy. And it was you who volunteered your time and talents. You helped answer the needs for victims of domestic violence. You mentored youth. You helped prepare and deliver meals to seniors or other neighbors that may be shut in. You made it possible for children to have a safe place to go during the day so Mom, Dad or both could work or have some time to run errands so their household could run more smoothly. Helping to meet the basic needs of the residents our community; whether it be in the area of health, education or income, welcoming more people home, giving children an equal chance to succeed, helping our neighbors in need—it’s all possible because of you. In this year’s annual report, we’re showing how you helped, the people whose lives you touched and how your money was invested. Through your continued support, together, united, we can continue to inspire hope and create opportunities for a better life for all in Onslow County. Thank you.

Sincerely,

R. Scott Riggs Chairman, Board of Directors United Way of Onslow County, Inc.

A Year in Review 2011 Wine Tasting

On October 20, 2011, United Way of Onslow County held our annual signature fundraising event, the Wine Tasting & Silent Auction. The Wine Tasting made $8,095, and proceeds from the fundraiser went towards our 2011-2012 Campaign, which is used to provide local grants to the Community Investment Programs within our local Partner Agencies. 8 wine vendors participated in this event, and over 100 silent auction items were donated. Wild Honey provided the entertainment for the evening. This year’s Wine Tasting was made possible by the generosity of First Bank, OMH, and Century 21 Sweyer & Associates, and was presented by Duck’s Bar and Grille.

Stuff the Bus

Imagination Library

United Way’s “Stuff the Bus” endeavor to assist school children in Onslow County was a huge success. Thanks to many people in our community, we were able to provide school supplies for over 170 children. Over 3,500 school items were collected or purchased to help the kids have the necessary supplies to start the school new year off right! Many thanks to the Jacksonville Mall for helping to sponsor this event. Southwest Wal-Mart and Target generously donated gift cards to purchase needed items that were not donated. Items were also donated to help the teachers with supplies. Volunteers from Volunteer Onslow assisted in sorting and packing up the supplies. Thanks to Janet Morgan and Cindy Williams for leading the project!

United Way of Onslow County, in partnership with the Jacksonville Rotary Club and the Onslow County Partnership for Children, launched the Dolly Parton Imagination Library--an early childhood literacy initiative to put books in the hands of young children, helping prepare them for kindergarten. This year, The Imagination Library was able to provide a new book each month to 188 children.

2-1-1 Service

United Way’s 2-1-1 is a community service information line that links people to health and human services in our community. People can call 2-1-1 to find out where to get help or give help, and it’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The 2-1-1 Program took 661 calls for help this year. The highest needs were in Basic Needs, Individual and Family Life, and Health Care. The majority of callers were between 20 and 29 years old, and most callers found the services “helpful” or “very helpful.” Unmet needs for the year included movers and moving assistance, travelers assistance, and utility service payment assistance.

CAN-DO The Community Advisory Network Developing Onslow County, aka CAN-DO, is a community-wide collaboration to identify and assess the needs in Onslow County. Formerly known as the Homeless Coalition, in December 2010, the Board of United Way voted to house the Coalition as an advisory board, in order to banish existing negative stereotypes towards the homeless. With a comprehensive membership representing public, private, and nonprofit organizations, CAN-DO can collaboratively leverage resources, seek access to available grants, centralize data and client tracking, and implement prevention and intervention strategies based on federally recognized best practices.


A Year in Review: Volunteer Superheroes In 2011, 568 volunteers dedicated over 6,000 hours to United Way of Onslow County, equaling $117,106.00 in “sweat equity� hours to local nonprofits.

New Horizons Planning for the Future

Disaster Relief Fund

Established through a $25,000 donation by local members of the NC Automobile Dealers Association, the Onslow Disaster Relief Fund will assist with local victims’ needs following disasters that would otherwise not be covered by insurance or federal programs, such as FEMA. Based on United Way’s current model for raising and distributing funds to vetted, local agencies, the Relief Fund will not only bridge the gap by establishing the first fund of its kind in Onslow County, but will also assist in meeting both immediate and long-term needs of disaster survivors. In addition, no administrative fees will be taken from the donations.

Community Health Assessment

The Community Assessment is the foundation for improving and promoting the health of the community. The role of the Community Assessment is to identify factors that affect the health of a population and determine the availability of resources within the community to adequately address these factors.Through collaborative efforts forged among community leaders, public health agencies, businesses, hospitals, private practicioners, and academic centers (to name a few), the community can begin to answer key questions such as (a) What are the strengths of our community?, (b) What health concerns do community members have?, and (c) What resources are available and what do we need in the community to address these concerns?

Asset Mapping

United Way and the Onslow County Health Department are working in collaboration with 2-1-1 services to develop a community wide asset map to provide a one-stop resource for individuals looking for education, income, and health assistance.
