MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT & BOARD CHAIR
Our Mission Trident United Way is a catalyst for measurable community transformation through collective impact in education, financial stability and health.
Our Vision Our Tri-County region is extraordinary! It is engaged, inclusive and thriving, and demands a high-quality educational system and economic conditions to eliminate the cycle of poverty, inspire graduation and foster lifelong good health. All residents achieve their highest potential. Individuals, organizations and institutions are aligned and commit their human and financial resources to ensure this quality of life.
This year, Trident United Way’s (TUW) Impact Report includes community impact and finance reporting for financial year 2015–2016. It reflects back on what we accomplished and highlights our current and future efforts to build a stronger community. Because of your personal investment, Trident United Way and its network of community partners were able to impact the lives of approximately 150,000 individuals during 2015–2016. With your investment, we are working to create bold community change by strengthening the education, financial stability and health of individuals and families in our community. When young adults graduate from high school, we know they will earn 43 percent more than their non-graduate peers.* When our neighbors are better educated and financially stable, they have the means to obtain and take advantage of needed healthcare, provide their families with nutritious food and live in safe and healthy homes.** We recognize these ‘building blocks’ are deeply interconnected and we recognize that it takes us all working together to build a better foundation for individual and community prosperity. As you read our report, you see how we are making a measurable and long-lasting impact. The stories you will see featured are just a few of the many examples of how TUW is working to strengthen partnerships, improve systems and build capacity to change lives and help our neighbors fulfill their hopes and do better for themselves.

You will also encounter features highlighting new, emerging work in each of our impact areas. We have included examples of how we fulfill our varied roles as a community connector, strategic partner, volunteer engager and funder as we make good on our commitment to bring partners together to affect bold community change. We thank you for entrusting your time, talent and treasure to TUW. With your support, we are able to help neighbors like Rhayden, James and Leslie – all featured on the following pages – gain hope and chart a path for a better future. We know that working together is the most efficient way to solve complex community issues. As we look back at our collective successes, we are also looking ahead to build a brighter future.

From ‘Learning to Read’ to ‘Reading to Learn’ When you meet Rhayden, a sixth grader at Morningside Middle School, you would never guess that his fourth grade teacher described him as quiet and introverted. With individualized support from Communities in Schools (CIS), a Trident United Way (TUW) funded partner, Rhayden’s reading level improved by a grade and a half in two years. His confidence has soared as a result, helping him make the transition to middle school. Born premature and underweight, Rhayden’s mother Charis describes her son as playing catch up both physically and academically ever since. Shy and hesitant to socialize with his classmates at Burns Elementary School, he was also reluctant to read in class and often felt discouraged with his schoolwork. In third grade, CIS Student Support Specialist Ms. Sacco stepped in after overhearing Rhayden’s younger brother worrying over his broken shoe in the car pickup line. She introduced herself to Rhayden’s family and outlined the different kinds of services CIS and other TUW partners could provide, including basic needs, bill assistance and academic supports for Rhayden. Ms. Sacco is an in-demand resource who manages a caseload of more than 40 students in a school where all 400 could easily benefit from assistance and resources. Despite her workload, she knows every child’s name and develops personal connections with each of them. In addition to enrolling Rhayden in resource services to improve his reading and writing skills, Ms. Sacco also paired him with a Lunch Buddy. He joined a social skills group to help improve his self-esteem. “Before, Rhayden wanted to quit, but now he is confident and wants to read,” Charis explains. “It is thanks to the supports he received he was middle school-ready.” While Rhayden still faces challenges as he continues to close the gap in his reading skills, his smile illustrates the confidence he has as he moves forward in school and prepares for a productive future.
Trident United Way was able to help CIS provide academic support to 327 students in 10 schools in the 2015–2016 school year.

PURPOSE In partnership with Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative (TCCC), Trident United Way (TUW) is facilitating the Kindergarten Readiness Network aligning community partners and volunteers committed to ensuring every child has the skills needed to succeed in Kindergarten. WHAT WE ARE DOING ABOUT IT ⚫⚫TUW is developing a three-to-five-year strategic framework that will promote systems supporting the whole child through focused strategies for families and caregivers, early childhood practitioners and communities. ⚫⚫The Kindergarten Readiness Guiding Team leads catalytic projects that support resource hubs, such as physical locations and networks of access as well as home visitation programs for families with infants. *“During the 2015-2016 school year, teachers assessed Kindergarten students on key elements of early reading using the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA 2.) (TCCC Chapter 3 Report.) “The DRA 2 is an individualized reading assessment that enables teachers to systematically observe, record, and evaluate changes in student’s reading performance over time.” (South Carolina Department of Education. DRA 2+ Training, Slide 4, Aug. 04, 2015, available at http://ed.sc.gov/scdoe/assets/File/instruction/early-learning-literacy/SC_DRA_Training_Presentation_August_2015.pdf) Note: The data provided is based on the first year of administering the DRA 2 and may be affected by test administration protocols.
JAMES’ STORY The Ambition to Thrive The relationship between Trident United Way’s (TUW) Shakelia LeBlanc, coordinator of the Berkeley County Prosperity Center, and her clients always begins with a conversation. Most individuals who walk through the center’s doors are initially looking for help with a basic need like food or clothing. Oftentimes, a combination of circumstances present numerous challenges and make it difficult for them to succeed. While working with other area nonprofits at the center to address immediate needs first, LeBlanc also engages in a broader conversation to help clients envision a path to a more stable future. “Once you start a conversation, people will begin to share more details about what’s going on in their lives,” she said. “It’s not usually a one-time fix. People often need to come back and we’ll continue to help them along their journey until they get to where they can be stable.” James has seen firsthand how establishing a long-term plan can set a person up for success. After losing his job and having his car repossessed, James felt he had hit rock bottom. Encouraged by a former colleague, he visited the Prosperity Center where LeBlanc and other center collaborators were able to assist with basic needs by finding temporary housing, prescription aid and car assistance. LeBlanc also helped James create a resume and apply for jobs. “I was going to give up,” James remembers. “The Prosperity Center gave me hope; they gave me encouragement and they strengthened my faith. I have ambition and I want to get things done because people took the time to help me.” Thanks to the collaboration of Trident United Way and other Prosperity Center partners, James has moved from survival mode into self-sufficiency with a full-time position and permanent housing. James continues to visit the Prosperity Center on a regular basis to serve as a source of encouragement and guidance for others who are beginning their journey there.
James is one of 2,683 people who visited one of the two centers in Berkeley and Dorchester counties in FY 2015–2016.

2 ADULTS + 1 PRESCHOOLER + 1 SCHOOL-AGE Housing and child care typically account for half of the family budget
PURPOSE The Self-Sufficiency Standard (The Standard) presents, analyzes and calculates, based on family composition, how much income a family must earn, in any given place, to meet their basic needs without public or private assistance. The Standard assumes that all adults work full time and includes costs associated with employment as well as the net effect of taxes and tax credits. It also takes into account variations of region, family size and composition as well as age of children and the fact that various costs increase at different rates over time. WHAT WE ARE DOING ABOUT IT ⚫⚫Trident United Way (TUW) is working with nonprofits in the Tri-County area to create a universal application of The Standard as a tool for service delivery and to inform quality improvements for program managers by using it to evaluate financial stability programs’ effectiveness. ⚫⚫TUW will use The Standard as a tool to create and track paths to self-sufficiency in its Prosperity Centers.
*All values are estimated values for the Tri-County area based on the mean of the self-sufficiency totals for Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties.
Springboarding to Self-Sufficiency with a Smile With few exceptions, individuals navigating a crisis face several challenges at once. Working with its partners, Trident United Way (TUW) invests in comprehensive approaches designed to address challenges on multiple fronts. At the heart of this work is understanding about the interconnectivity between education, financial stability and health, and how challenges in one area affect a person’s ability to succeed in others. Leslie’s journey with East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO) is one example of the coordinated approach TUW and its partners use to address complex challenges. A widowed mother of three whose husband passed away from the disease facing her two eldest children, Leslie struggled to stay employed while caring for her family’s health. Originally requesting ECCO’s help with clothing and bill assistance, Leslie also attended a MoneySmart workshop, but it was a visit to ECCO’s dental clinic in 2015 that most dramatically changed her life. Like many struggling to care for ill family members, Leslie did not make her own care top priority. Unfortunately, eight teeth extractions later, she felt insecure about her appearance and knew it impeded her ability to secure stable employment. Thanks to the clinic, she received partial dentures boosting her confidence and helping to springboard her to financial stability with a new job. “These dentures are, without a doubt, the best present I’ve ever gotten,” Leslie said. “You won’t believe the difference they’ve made in my life!” ECCO is among a network of TUW partners collaborating to provide individuals like Leslie with tools to achieve greater stability and health for their families. TUW also facilitates ongoing partner improvement through collaborative best practice and data sharing. “It’s been helpful to see what other nonprofits are doing to provide opportunities for individuals and improve the community overall,” ECCO Director of Health Services Meredith Johnson said. “Bringing us together helps us know what each other’s challenges are and how we can work better together.”
ECCO was able to see 2,708 patients in its dental and health clinics during FY 2015–2016, thanks in part to a grant provided by Trident United Way.

PURPOSE Healthy Tri-County is a multi-sector regional initiative to improve health outcomes in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties. WHAT WE ARE DOING ABOUT IT ⚫⚫The highest priority of Healthy Tri-County is the development of a regional health improvement plan, which will chart a seven-year vision (2018–2025) for improving health outcomes in the Tri-County area. ⚫⚫TUW, Roper St. Francis and MUSC Health held a groundbreaking Health Forum Series with participation from 322 community members representing 84 organizations to learn community members’ feedback to the CHNA and help inform their collective effort to improve Tri-County residents’ health. ⚫⚫The primary outcome of the collaborative efforts of TUW, Roper St. Francis and MUSC Health was the launch of Healthy Tri-County in January 2017.
BUILDING CAPACITY, IMPROVING SYSTEMS, STRENGTHENING PARTNERSHIPS
TRIDENT UNITED WAY: COMMUNITY CONNECTOR Trident United Way’s (TUW) Health Forum Series began in 2016. As two of 84 organizations attending, the Shifa Free Medical Clinic and Charleston Dorchester Mental Health Center (CDMHC) identified a way to connect a need with a service. As a result, uninsured individuals between the ages of 19-64 with incomes at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level can now access CDMHC mobile mental health service at Shifa clinics twice a month. This is just one example of how TUW assembles the necessary partners to align shared goals to create real change. We do this to improve the lives of individuals and families in our community and build a brighter future.
In our role as a community connector, TUW recognizes that no single organization or institution can tackle the complex issues facing our community. Together we can make a difference. Dr. Reshma Kahn “The Health Forum Series is a great resource which helps different organizations collaborate to better serve the community better. It is through this forum that Shifa Clinic developed a partnership with CDMHC to expand its programs to provide mental health services, which has helped the community to have access to the much-needed care.” Dr. Reshma Kahn, Medical Director and Founder, Shifa Free Medical Clinic
“Our hope is that through our collaboration with Shifa, patients will benefit from a “one-stop-shop.” Patients can be identified during a routine medical visit for mental health services and immediately referred to these services. Individuals can potentially see their doctors and counselor on the same day, meeting the patients’ needs and overall satisfaction.” Heather Lloyd, Clinician, CDMHC Highway to Hope
WHO WE ARE A COMMUNITY CONNECTOR We bring partners together to develop and deliver collaborative solutions for complex community problems.
A STRATEGIC PARTNER

Every child will be supported from birth, to be prepared for school, meet grade-level standards and graduate from high school prepared for employment or higher education. Improve the opportunity for all people to enjoy a quality standard of living. Our neighbors have an opportunity and the tools for personal advancement; from crisis, to financial stability, to self-sufficiency. Improve the health of all individuals. Our neighbors will have access to healthcare, know how to lead healthy lives and be empowered to live and participate in environments that promote good health.
