LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN DEAR FRIEND OF UNITED WAY, In my last year as Chairman of the Board, I was privileged to be a part of many exciting ventures with United Way of Central Oklahoma. During 2008, we saw four years of hard work come to fruition when we moved into our new building. We also adopted a new advertising message, LIVE UNITED, and we raised a record amount through our fundraising campaign. Our evolution as a community leader continued. Though United Way will always be a significant funder of local programs, increasingly we are called upon to join with other leaders to address critical issues facing our community. In response to Hurricane Gustav, United Way worked with the City of Oklahoma City to provide a shelter for evacuees, in our first operation as the primary social services coordinator following a large-scale disaster requiring mass care in our area.

“I’VE SEEN, FIRST HAND,

THE AMAZING WORK

DONORS AND VOLUNTEERS ACCOMPLISH

THROUGH UNITED WAY, AND IT GIVES ME GREAT PRIDE TO

BE ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH AN ORGANIZATION.”

We remain focused on the work accomplished through our 60 Partner Agencies. They are absolutely dedicated to providing services to those who need it most. Although we saw an economic downturn in 2008, the citizens of central Oklahoma saw the needs of our local people and were very generous in their response. They contributed a record $18.56 million through the 2008 fundraising campaign, in turn helping 388,468 central Oklahomans. Over the years I’ve seen, first hand, the amazing work donors and volunteers accomplish through United Way, and it gives me great pride to be associated with such an organization. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it. Sincerely,


 Luke Corbett Board Chairman United Way of Central Oklahoma

United Way of Central Oklahoma’s history is steeped in partnerships that have shaped our community.

From funding Partner Agencies to leading collaborations that result in new entities or programs, we are proud of the work we do to connect and enhance local services. In this decade alone, United Way has helped create the Elder Abuse Shelter at Sunbeam Family Services, Central Oklahoma Turning Point, Smart Start Oklahoma, and the 2007 ice storm shelter at the Cox Convention Center. In 2008, two critical partnerships stand out: a joint effort to engage high school students in addressing our local dropout rate and operational support for the shelter that housed Hurricane Gustav evacuees. Increasingly, we are called upon to stand in the gap to resolve broad community problems. We shoulder this role with honor as a unique connector of partners in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.


THROUGH UNITED WAY

I WAS ABLE TO SEE THE IMMEDIATE EFFECT

THE PARTNERSHIP HAD ON

HURRICANE GUSTAV EVACUEES. THEY WERE REALLY THANKFUL WE WERE THERE TO GIVE THEM A

PLACE TO LAY THEIR HEAD AND A COMFORTING MEAL.”

GUSTAV

SHELTER Following the joint efforts to respond to the ice storm of December 2007, United Way of Central Oklahoma was asked to serve as the City of Oklahoma City’s coordinator for social services during large-scale disaster response. With an historic focus on Community Preparedness and our strong network of Partner Agencies, we were ready to accept this responsibility and a new community response plan was created. The plan was tested in September 2008 as Hurricane Gustav made landfall Labor Day weekend in the Gulf Coast. Nearly 1,800 Louisiana residents with no means of evacuating the area on their own were brought by bus to Oklahoma City. Under the City of Oklahoma City’s leadership, United Way, many of its Partner Agencies and dozens of other disaster relief organizations joined together to provide a safe haven. As part of the Incident Command System managing the shelter operation, United Way staff and volunteers were on site to help address social service issues. Partner Agencies joined us bringing their unique skills to the shelter. Staff and volunteers from the American Red Cross, Boy Scouts of America, Catholic Charities, NorthCare, Metropolitan Better Living Center, Salvation Army, YMCA and others provided childcare, recreation, clothing, counseling, meals and emotional support.


STUDENT SUCCESS

SUMMIT In October 2008, United Way partnered with the Oklahoma City Public School District, the City of Oklahoma City, and the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce to host a Student Success Summit as part of the America’s Promise Alliance Dropout Prevention Program. While Oklahoma City was one of 20 communities throughout the United States that hosted meetings focused on local dropout prevention, our city was the only one that included students in the event. In fact, students made up the entire audience. Two hundred ninth graders arrived at the Cox Convention Center to share their ideas about why kids drop out and what can be done to help. Since then, additional focus groups with freshmen and sophomores have been held at United Way.

In Oklahoma County, nearly 20 percent of high school students will drop out before graduation. United Way and the Oklahoma City Public School District are using the information the students provided to develop a prevention plan. There are many factors, but the students made it clear that there is a great need for more involvement in their lives from caring adults. Enhancing and expanding local tutoring and mentoring programs will be a critical component of our plan to reduce the local dropout rate.

Five Focus Areas guide everything we do at United Way of Central Oklahoma. By aligning our work around Successful Kids, Strong Families, Independent Living, Healthy Citizens, and Community Preparedness we are creating lasting changes in people’s lives so that everyone has an opportunity for a better life. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when a family finds financial stability, when the disabled and elderly find independence, when our citizens are healthier, and when our community is prepared for disaster. In 2008, United Way served 388,468 people and invested a record $10,739,749 in local programs with measurable outcomes at 60 outstanding Partner Agencies. Details of our funding by Focus Area as well as by program may be found in the following pages.

SUCCESSFUL

KIDS

Through our focus on Successful Kids, United Way nurtures infants, children, and youth giving them the opportunity to succeed in school, develop life skills, and become productive citizens.

Making sure children are prepared for school is a critical component of our Successful Kids focus. Through funding to Celebrations Preschool, United Way ensures that children from Spanish-speaking homes are ready to attend English-speaking schools. After just three quarters, a majority of three-year-old students are using English in daily conversation, an 83 percent improvement.

Research shows that even one caring adult can have a dramatic impact on a child’s life and future success. United Way supports one-to-one mentoring through Big Brothers Big Sisters where at-risk kids are matched with a “big.” Seventyfour percent of the children show improved school performance and 98 percent say that their mentor makes them feel important.

Productive citizens must first be successful students who earn a diploma. United Way Partner Agency Youth Services for Oklahoma County is helping homeless teens overcome immense odds in order to graduate from high school through the SKIL (Supporting Kids in Independent Living) program. In 2008, 98 percent of SKIL seniors, like these touring Oklahoma City Community College, graduated and most had finalized their postgraduation plans.

STRONG FAMILIES

United Way strengthens families by providing resources to achieve financial stability as well as access to counseling, debt management, education, job training, and housing.

Financial stability is a core component of a Strong Family. At Urban League, United Way supports the Employment and Training programs so that able adults may improve their job skills and increase their incomes. Sixty - five percent of participants develop a career plan, 40 percent obtain employment, and 70 percent of those maintain that employment.

The Oklahoma Department of Libraries estimates that 140,000 adults in Oklahoma County are functionally illiterate. United Way funding at Community Literacy Centers helps adults learn to read or improve their skills. Eighty - six percent of participants say that their level of task confidence is significantly increased.

Strengthening families includes improving living conditions. United Way supports Possibilities so that local people have tools to improve their communities themselves. At Possibilities Innovation Program, participants learn facilitation, public speaking, and conflict resolution in order to engage their peers to improve their neighborhoods, schools, houses of faith, and businesses. More than 80 percent of graduates report improved techniques to apply in their communities.

INDEPENDENT

LIVING United Way seeks to engage older adults and the disabled with access to independent living, job skills, volunteer positions, and dynamic relationships while their primary caregivers receive respite and support.

Caring for an aging loved one can be a tremendous burden for a family. United Way funds Daily Living Centers so that older adults have a safe, nurturing environment allowing their caregivers to maintain a work schedule and their personal interests. Ninety-two percent of caregivers indicated that the services of Daily Living Centers allow them to maintain normal daily activities.

Creating access to job skills and the opportunity to be employed for the disabled is an integral part of United Way’s focus on Independent Living. Partner Agency Employment and Residential Centers (EARC) does just that. More than 50 percent of participants are achieving a high level of accomplishment in use of new job skills.

Funded by United Way, YMCA’s Lincoln Park Senior Center provides a comfortable atmosphere that encourages social interaction, physical activity and educational opportunities, so that older adults remain actively engaged in the community. Ninety-eight percent of seniors attending the Center say they spend more time with their friends through their participation at Lincoln Park.

HEALTHY CITIZENS United Way is focused on Healthy Citizens so that central Oklahomans have access to physical and mental health care and adopt healthy lifestyles while important medical research is funded.

Through United Way Partner Agency D-DENT, Dentists for the Disabled and Elderly in Need of Treatment, low-income, uninsured senior and disabled adults have access to quality dental care. Not only do these clients receive major restorative services like crowns and dentures at no cost, 62 percent also report learning basic dental care – skills that can prevent costly procedures in the future.

Thirty percent of Oklahoma adults suffer from arthritis. United Way supports the Arthritis Foundation, Oklahoma Chapter, so that those affected are healthier through education about the disease and pain management techniques. Seventyfive percent of clients report an increased ability to perform daily tasks while 66 percent say their pain is less intense as a result of their experience.

Addiction affects both the abuser and the family. United Way encourages healthy lifestyles through counseling services at A Chance to Change. The program serves addicts and their families with impressive results. Ninety percent of participants remain clean and sober, see improvement in their emotional and mental health, and enjoy improved relationships with their loved ones.

COMMUNITY PREPAREDNESS

United Way is preparing our community to respond to individual and community emergencies.

As part of our preparedness plan, United Way funds Salvation Army, an organization that daily feeds and houses those affected by individual and community emergencies. Not only do they meet immediate needs, they are also successful in helping people get back on their feet. Eighty percent of the women and families living in their shelter have moved into transitional or public housing, a solid step toward self-sufficiency.

Partner Agency Travelers Aid/Upward Transitions is focused on individual emergencies. With United Way support, they are working to prevent homelessness by providing utility, rent and deposit assistance. Ninety percent of clients receiving financial aid were able to remain in their homes thanks to this extra nudge of support.

Oklahoma ranks among the top 20 states in the nation for incidences of domestic violence. United Way supports our community’s only shelter specifically for abused women and children at Partner Agency YWCA. Though these women are experiencing a personal disaster when they arrive at the YWCA Emergency Shelter, 91 percent feel safe at the shelter and 64 percent report achieving sufficient financial stability to remain independent from their abuser as they transition from the shelter into the community.

United Way of Central Oklahoma maintains the highest level of accountability. In addition to exceeding United Way Worldwide’s Standards of Excellence, we also seek the guidance of committed local volunteers to oversee all aspects of our finances. In 2008, nearly 300 volunteers were involved in reviewing our annual audit, guiding the Community Investment process, leading our fundraising campaign, and securing donated advertising. We are proud that our annual audit, once again, received a clean report with an unqualified opinion. Community Investment volunteers work the hardest, perhaps, meticulously scrutinizing programs before recommending funding awards. These 200 donors spent 4,500 hours reviewing requests, visiting each agency seeking support, and reviewing program outcomes. Five months of analysis resulted in unanimous approval by the Board of Directors of the volunteers’ recommendations. A Campaign Cabinet of 50 community leaders guided a record-breaking fundraising campaign. And, the volunteer Marketing Committee secured more than $2 million in donated advertising time and space from generous local media outlets. With more than 50,000 local investors interested in the impact of their contributions, we are as committed as ever to being good stewards of the funds entrusted to us. Data in the following pages reveals the details of our fundraising totals, Partner Agency funding, financial position and activity, and advertising donations.
