AT UNITED WAY OF NORTH CENTRAL FLORIDA, we have been changing lives since 1957. Over the years, our footprint has expanded from beyond Alachua County to the five surrounding counties in the region—Bradford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy and Union, making us the largest single private funder of health and human services in the community. In the nearly six decades since, we have raised more than $91 million dollars and grown an investment portfolio of impact-based programs that produce targeted outcomes in improving education and health, and closing the gap on income disparity. Roughly 70 percent of the monies we raise support these focus areas while 30 percent of every dollar raised is committed to supporting immediate needs such as food, shelter and safety. The most significant part of these dollars is they are leveraged by the agencies who receive our grants that, when combined, yield an average 3-to-1 match. That means every dollar invested in the Community Investment Fund, $3 in state and federal grants also go out to the community. Certainly, that is a return-on-investment to be proud of, and one last year, helped to push the UWNCFL’s total regional impact to more than $10 million dollars. In 2015, the UWNCFL received the highest rating of Four Stars from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator that provides ratings of the Financial Health and Accountability & Transparency of thousands of non-profits. We also launched the nation’s only Small Business Partnership Program, a special donor program that allows business owners to contribute at a leadership level with every donation going to the Community Investment Fund. It is for these reasons and more, your United Way ranks among the top 16% of more than 1,200 United Ways in the United States of America. Throughout this annual report, you will read stories from the people who were served by agencies receiving United Way funding. Many of these people were helped during our last funding cycle. In 2016, we will enter our second three-year funding cycle, awarding grants to local agencies whose programs best meet and exceed

the needs in our targeted focus areas. The process is competitive, but the results are beyond rewarding. Every funded program is expected to report its data quarterly to us so we can track the results of each funded initiative and keep track of what is working, and what is not. It is a highly-accountable model based on data but built on relationships and trust. As a community, we’ve learned we can only get ahead when we know and trust each other. The UWNCFL could not be more proud of the partnership we have formed with our funded impact partner agencies and their leadership. The work demonstrated in the following pages would not be possible without the tremendous commitment of our partners and donors to changing the lives of the people who need us most, our neighbors and friends in North Central Florida. Thank you for your continued support of the United Way of North Central Florida. And a special thank you for letting Change Live Here!

WHY UNITED WAY? United Way of North Central Florida builds solutions and makes community connections that change lives — for the better.

THE IMPACT MODEL United Way of North Central Florida is an impact-based United Way agency and is ranked among the top 16 percent of over 1,200 United Ways in the United States of America. The impact model is a results-driven model that focuses our agency’s work on specific areas of need in the community with targeted outcomes and measurable results. Our impact strategy stretches across the areas of Education, Health, Income and Immediate Needs with targeted outcomes in each area of investment. This model produces results two-fold – through internal program building with Community Impact Initiatives and external partner funding with the Community Investment Fund.

COMMUNITY IMPACT INITIATIVES We address areas of need in the community where gaps of service or capacity-building is needed by building partnerships and leveraging grants and other resources to create internal initiatives aimed at targeted outcomes in our Impact Strategy. Once sustainability is reached, initiatives are often transitioned to United Way Impact Partners for continued operation, and eventually funded on a long-term basis through the Community Investment Fund. Depending on the needs of the community, each year of Community Impact Initiatives may look a little different, allowing for us to remain adaptive with the ebb and flow of the changing community conditions.

COMMUNITY INVESTMENT FUND We convene experts who bring skills and resources needed to create lasting impact, known as our Community Investment Council. Our Community Investment Council oversees the Community Investment Fund process from initial grant application to program funding. All of our programs in the areas of Education, Health and Income are funded on a three-year basis, while immediate needs programs are funded on a one-year basis. A total of 70 percent of our funding goes towards Education, Health, and Income. 30 percent goes towards Immediate Needs. Along with the community impact initiatives, each program funded in the Community Investment Fund provides long-term results in a targeted area of our Impact Strategy.


EDUCATION, INCOME, HEALTH & IMMEDIATE NEEDS EDUCATION GOAL: Increase high school graduation rate to 90 percent by 2018. Success by 6 is our primary education strategy. By focusing on programs to strengthen families and prepare children to learn, Success By 6 creates a new generation of students who can thrive in school and life. INCOME GOAL: Reduce domestic impediments to education created by poverty (i.e. hunger, homelessness). HEALTH GOAL: Children and adults are healthy and safe in their home, community and schools, and have increased access to dental and medical care. IMMEDIATE NEEDS GOAL: Respond to community’s needs including food, shelter, utility payment assistance and other immediate needs

KEEPING MONEY IN RESIDENT’S POCKETS THE VOLUNTEER INCOME TAX ASSISTANCE (VITA) program is

“Give VITA a try. It’s incredibly easy, convenient and it keeps more money in my pocket.” – Lisa Darling, VITA client

LISA DARLING is a Business Assistant in the UF Health

Human Resources department. Her husband Reginald is a retiree who worked for the Alachua County School Board for 18 years. Lisa is a mother, grandmother, wife and minister. She is also a proud native of Gainesville. Darling heard about United Way and the VITA program through her workplace. “I did my taxes myself one year and wasn’t satisfied, so I called VITA. They assisted me and I’ve been coming back ever since,” said Darling. Last year, the Darlings were able to save a little over $1,000 filing together on the advice from one of the tax preparers. With the additional money, they were able to make some necessary repairs and improvements on their home.

an IRS-funded program that provides free tax preparation for low- to moderate-income community members in United Way’s six-county area and is UWNCFL’s sole internal Community Impact income program. VITA has been present at UWNCFL for 5 years, and was part of East Gainesville Development for 9 years prior to that. VITA has successfully leveraged many community resources to provide tax preparation, including a large partnership with UF Levin College of Law, Santa Fe College, Buchholz Academy of Finance and Alachua County Library District, and puts money back in the pockets of local residents. The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is a federal tax credit for low- and moderate-income working people. It encourages and rewards work as well as offsets federal payroll and income taxes. United Way of North Central Florida also provides MyFreeTaxes, a supplemental online tax program that makes free tax software available to the local community. During 2014–15, 181 residents earning $58,000 per year or less used the software.

Receipt of larger Earned Income Tax Credit (EITCs) is linked to: • Higher test scores, particularly in math. Larger EITCs are linked to improved test scores in the year of receipt for both elementary and middle-school students. • Higher high-school graduation rates. Receiving a larger EITC in childhood increases the likelihood that a student will graduate high school or complete his or her general equivalency diploma (GED). • Higher college attendance rates. The larger the EITC a child’s family receives, the more likely he or she will enter college by age 19 or 20.

SOMETHING TO SMILE ABOUT SEAL & SMILE is an Oral Health America-sponsored health program that provides children with free dental sealants, fluoride varnish, oral health exams and referrals for dental care to ensure tooth decay does not impede their ability to learn. Seal & Smile is UWNCFL’s sole internal Community Impact health initiative and has been ongoing at UWNCFL for 5 years. This school-based initiative is a partnership between UWNCFL, the University of Florida College of Dentistry, Santa Fe School of Dental Hygiene and Oral Health America. The program began through community response regarding the great need for dental care for lower-income children in Alachua County and was started concurrently with the Weekend Hunger Backpack Program through Community Agency Partnership Program (CAPP) start-up funding. In addition to providing preventative health services to second and sixth grade students in Alachua County, Seal & Smile helps University of Florida dental students and Santa Fe College dental hygiene students complete an education learning component through volunteering their time and services.

“I come from a place where access to care was a problem, and I lost my mother due to limited care, so I’ve always wanted to help others with similar experiences and those who do not have any access at all.” – Stephen Obeng

STEPHEN OBENG and his classmates saw a need and decided to do something about it. He told us, “After my classmates and I raised some money, we decided to do something really good with it. I come from a place where access to care was a problem, and I lost my mother due to limited care, so I’ve always wanted to help others with similar experiences and those who do not have any access at all.” That’s how Super Sealant Saturday came to be. The team wanted this event to help reduce tooth decay for underserved children in the community by providing oral hygiene instructions both to the kids and their parents along with preventative services such as dental sealants and fluoride varnish applications. Parents and children were also educated on various careers like dental assisting, dental hygiene and dentistry. Obeng said, “This was the biggest project I’ve ever headed up, and I learned a great deal. In the end, my class and 215 volunteers provided a great and needed service to the community.” Thank you to Stephen and his classmates!

OPENING UP THE WORLD WITH BOOKS READINGPALS is a strategic education program to help boost reading scores among children in Alachua County. ReadingPals mentors read one-on-one with second and third graders for an hour per week. Throughout the school year, mentors and children form bonds over reading activities. Students keep many of the books they read in order to build home libraries. ReadingPals is made possible through the support of Carol and Barney Barnett, The Children’s Movement and their many local partners.

• ReadingPals on average performed 17 percent better than peers on Discovery Education Assessment in reading. • ReadingPals students improved their average score by 12.6 points. Similar peers decreased their average scores by 4.4 points. • United Way of North Central Florida ReadingPals program was rated the number three ReadingPals program in the state for number of reading hours students received.

“I wanted to share this passion and hopefully inspire a young reader.” – Mary Ellen Bentham

After retiring, Mary Ellen Bentham, former Radiologic Technologist at UFHealth, wanted to share her love of reading with a child. Bentham’s second student, Dayla, an energetic, excited, smart (not to mention adorable) child, was matched with her at the beginning of second grade. Bentham and Dayla could be seen each Tuesday reading books together, Dayla wiggling in her chair tracing the words as she read them to her mentor.

Not unlike many children enrolled in ReadingPals, Bentham explained, “Dayla’s biggest struggle was staying on task.”

Together they read more than 15 books in the year, many of which Dayla took home. “Dayla’s favorite books were about animals. She especially liked to do the quizzes and games [in the back of the books]. She liked the challenge of the games.”

Reading with a mentor positively affects students. In the 2014–15 school year, ReadingPals students did 17 percent better on their reading assessment.*

Studies show when children struggle to stay on task, their test scores suffer. If a child struggles in reading, that only adds to the challenge.

*Discovery Education Assessment in reading used. Peers included students in same grade, school, and free/reduced lunch program status.

Check & Connect provides drop-out prevention specialists in three Alachua County high schools with the greatest population of youth considered at risk of dropping out: Gainesville, Eastside and Hawthorne High Schools. Each Check & Connect specialist connects as a mentor and counselor with up to 35–40 students and their families to provide social services referrals and family strengthening assistance. Through the generous donation of a private local donor, 101 Check & Connect students have also received laptops. The laptops helped the students gain skills and knowledge related to goal setting, Microsoft software, career exploration and online job applications.

Hartwell said, “In an effort to keep the student from falling behind, Barbara Brady, a Check & Connect Specialist, met her at the public library to work with her and to take assignments to and from her teachers. This student will be graduating this year, largely in part to the interest that Ms. Brady has continued to take in this student.”

YES!

Hartwell continued, “Very recently, one of our eleventh grade students was in Ms. Brady’s office. She told me that both of them were in tears because this young man was on the A/B honor roll for the very first time since he had been in high school. This is just one example of the small victories that we see through this program. It’s the baby steps in building student confidence, the ability to advocate for themselves and connecting students with information and resources. Ms. Brady’s office is on one of the busier hallways in our school. It is the perfect location for students to drop by for a quick word of encouragement or getting supplies if needed.”

PARTNER AGENCIES

ONE COMMUNITY, MANY PARTNERS Community Impact Partner Agencies are invited to apply for United Way funding through the Community Investment Process. The Community Investment Process is led by a group of community volunteers that use results-driven data to determine how the funds will be invested.

The Community Investment Council bases its funding decisions on the agencies’ ability to improve on the indicators of at least one strategy under a particular goal. All of the programs funded by the Community Investment Fund focus on one of our main areas, education,

income, health and immediate needs. The United Way of North Central Florida Community Investment Fund is made up of the donations that are not designated to individual 501(c)(3) agencies. Below is a chart showing the grant-funded programs during the 2013–2016 investment cycle.

EDUCATION GIRLS PLACE ACHIEVE is an acronym for Academic Counseling and Help Increasing Educational Victories Everyday, a Girls Place program initiated in 2013 with funding from the United Way of North Central Florida. ACHIEVE provides homework assistance, one-onone tutoring, mentoring, field trips, enhanced education in reading and math, and social growth. Executive Director, Janna Magette told us, “We had a first grader, who was in danger all year of being held back. Her school had red-flagged her as ‘not meeting promotion requirements.’ We ended up getting a visit from her mother, who came to us in tears asking us to help her daughter with school. We knew that little girl needed a great mentor so we paired her with someone who was hard-working, showed enthusiasm to work with her and most of all, was compassionate. She began to meet with our girl twice a week for at least hour-long sessions and in no time, we started noticing that she was doing better with her work and she was showing new enthusiasm for school. One of her teachers let us know that she was proud of her hard work and success after Rachel’s reading grade rose one letter and her math grade rose two grades. She finished the first grade, still a bit behind, but still on the rise!” “92 percent of girls in ACHIEVE tested, have moved one or more reading levels. Collectively they’ve moved 26 levels.” – Janna Magette, Executive Director, Girls Place

BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF ALACHUA COUNTY The four Boys and Girls Clubs of Alachua County are community based organizations that provide young people with fun, safe and constructive environments after school and during the summer. United Way of North Central Florida funds the Comprehensive Youth Development program at the club. Jose Cruz’s children participate in the funded program. “Being a single father of six kids, both my finances and time allotted for my children are at a minimum,” said Jose Cruz. “I work two jobs and attend school to try to do better for their future. I appreciate the blessing the Boys & Girls Club has given me. With five of my kids being members, I am never worried about their safety. As important, all of them have excelled academically with four of them making the A-B Honor Roll this past nine weeks. There is no way I could have had my kids achieve their success without the Boys & Girls Club. It is my children’s second home.”

“The mission of Catholic Charities is to provide services to anyone in need, regardless of race or religion; to advocate justice, human dignity and quality of life; and to call all people to join in these efforts,” – John Barli, Regional Director, Catholic Charities.

Catholic Charities created “Bridges to Prosperity,” a three-part program that is funded by a grant awarded by United Way of North Central Florida, that helps look at poverty as a personal and social issue. Part one begins with financial fitness: a four week course designed to help find extra dollars every month to save, create a spending plan and avoid falling into money and credit traps. Part two is a 15-week course “Getting Ahead in a Just Getting by World.” This part digs deeper into the causes of poverty and its impacts on the community and the individual. They work with the client to establish objectives and goals to help them become self-sufficient. Part three involves matching the graduates up with community allies to work together toward the goals set out in part two. John Barli, Regional Director of Catholic Charities told us, “We had a

woman come in who had just gone through a divorce and was starting over with her four young children living in a small apartment. She took our Financial Fitness class and learned that ‘it’s better to sacrifice short term to have a gain in the long term.’ She became a full-time student at Santa Fe College who made the Dean’s List every semester while still finding the time to volunteer at her church and children’s school. She was able to pay off a loan in order to purchase a foreclosed house, and tells us that her mortgage is less than the rent for the apartment. She said, ‘I was able to make the right financial choices and make my money work for me and the kids.’” Barli continues, “knowing the benefit now, she is grateful she attended the Financial Fitness and Bridges to Prosperity classes and has encouraged people she knows to attend.”

United Way of North Central Florida funds Meals on Wheels, as well as two other programs through ElderCare. Meals on Wheels delivers hot meals to homebound elderly men and women everyday. In addition to receiving a nutritional meal, an added benefit to home meal deliveries is the personal contact provided by the volunteer who delivers the meal. For some people, that volunteer is the only person they will speak to all day. ElderCare director, Anthony Clarizio shared with us, “One of our clients is ‘Gwen,’ an 86 year old lifelong resident of Alachua who still lives in her own home in the small commu-

nity. She is very alert and oriented but also has health problems physically that make it very hard for her to get around and have put her at an increased risk for falls. She has two children living nearby that help her, but both are in their 60s and have health problems of their own. Gwen was set up with an Emergency Alert response unit, Meals on Wheels and Home Making services that have allowed her to be able to feel safe in her home due to her risk of falls. The programs have really helped lighten the family’s load. She was so happy to get the help and to feel more independent. She also no longer feels as if she was being a burden to her family or lives with the fear of having to leave her home.”

“ElderCare’s mission is to be an advocate for the elderly and provide services that will build capacity, maximize independence and enrich the quality of life for the seniors in our area,” – Anthony Clarizio, Executive Director, ElderCare of Alachua County.

HEALTH

Child Advocacy Center has worked collaboratively with the United Way of North Central Florida to help abused children heal since 2001, shortly after the inception of the Center. During the past 15 years the United Way has supported the Forensic Interviewing Program at the Center which ensures that each child that has been alleged to have been abused has a childfriendly place to go to talk about what happened. The support from the United Way also ensures that these services are available to children day or night, weekends and holidays and anytime the crisis of child maltreatment is being investigated.

“My best day at the Center is when a child says, ‘I love this place! When can I come back?’ which means that the child felt safe and cared for enough during their interview that they are open to therapeutic services with our therapy team after the investigation is over,” – Sherry Kitchens, EdS LMFT, President/CEO, Child Advocacy Center, Inc.

The Child Advocacy Center coordinates the team of professionals that need information or a statement from a child in order to determine what follow up is needed to make sure that children in the family are safe. Sometimes after an interview with

a child, information is provided to the team that leads to an arrest of the perpetrator, or determination of a safe placement, or even services that the child may need to help them with the healing process. The team of professionals—child protection investigators, detectives from law enforcement, advocates, therapists, guardian ad litem, assistant state attorneys—watch the interview in real time through a closed circuit television. The team can call in questions to the interviewer to ensure that the interviewer maintains rapport with the child throughout the interview, but the team also gets the critical information that they need to maximize their efforts to keep the child safe. The team of professionals also meet with non-offending caregivers which enables them to join with the caregiver working to keep their child safe.

SALUTING OUR GENEROUS DONORS TOCQUEVILLE SOCIETY MEMBERS GIFTS OF $10,000 AND ABOVE French aristocrat Alexis Charles-Henri Clerel De Tocqueville was 26 years old when he came to America in 1831. As a keen observer of American society, he recognized, applauded and immortalized the voluntary spirit that lives in America’s heart. His observations formed the basis for Democracy in America, a book describing this new country and its people. United Way’s Tocqueville Society was created to honor the goodwill and community leadership that inspired De Tocqueville’s writings more than 175 years ago. The Tocqueville Society honors leaders locally and nationally who exemplify that spirit through their high level of personal giving to United Way. Our local society is a growing community of individuals and families who make an outstanding difference through influential leadership, outstanding volunteerism and selfless giving. Today, the Tocqueville Society is one of the world’s most prestigious institutions for individuals who are passionate about improving peoples’ lives and strengthening communities. United Way donors who give $10,000 or more annually are members of the Tocqueville Society and are recognized both locally and nationally. United Way of North Central Florida is pleased to present our local Tocqueville Donors and recognize this exemplary level of commitment with deep gratitude and sincere appreciation: Kay and David Ayers
