HELPING OTHERS HELP THEMSELVES Doing what we can to ensure that the most basic needs of our community members are met, thereby helping them to become self-sufficient, is a vital component of working to make our community a better one. Funding dedicated to the investment area of Self-Sufficiency and Basic Needs addresses the challenges faced by the working poor, families and individuals without adequate food, those who cannot otherwise afford legal services, people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, those who were formerly incarcerated and families and individuals in financial distress.
MEET HERMIONE - UNITED WAY DONOR Hermione Malone, Community Outreach Manager, University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center Though not a native Clevelander, Hermione now calls Northeast Ohio home, and is doing all she can to enhance the community that welcomed her. She views United Way of Greater Cleveland as a trusted adviser, providing valuable insight on the specific needs of our community. Because of that insight, she’s become a member of United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council and has become involved with local programs that help women coming back into our community following periods of incarceration. Hermione has donated new clothing she’s purchased but never worn, and encouraged her friends and colleagues to do the same.

MEET SCOTT - CREATIVE ARTIST Assisted by Emerald Development and Economic Network, Homeless Prevention Rapid Re-Housing Program Scott, who suffers with anxiety, lives in special housing for people with disabilities. A few months ago, his landlord discussed concerns he had with Scott’s lease compliance. The Emerald Development and Economic Network (EDEN) Homeless Prevention Rapid Re-Housing Program stepped in. Their Housing Retention Specialists helped him develop a routine to keep his apartment clean. As an artist, Scott works with many different mediums including paint. He used his bathroom as a studio but unfortunately the paint was staining the sink. After working with the specialists, he began lining his bathroom wall and sink with plastic to protect the finishes. His apartment is now clean and organized, and Scott is more secure, knowing he has a comfortable place to call home. Care Navigation Program, Hospice of the Western Reserve
A STRONG FOUNDATION ON WHICH TO BUILD Nelson Mandela said that education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world. As evidenced by an investment of nearly $3.5 million in programs that support education, children and families, United Way of Greater Cleveland volunteers agree. United Way funded programs focus on supporting our children as they travel on a positive academic journey and strengthening the family by helping to increase home stability and the relationships within the family.
MEET STEVE - UNITED WAY DONOR Steve Brazie, Commercial Branch Manager, The Sherwin-Williams Company As a youngster, Steve was taught to help others. Employed by Sherwin-Williams for 23 years, he has been a strong supporter of United Way for all of those years, contributing financially, and assisting during the United Way Paint Day events, when groups of volunteers from area businesses and organizations come together to make a visible difference in our community (Steve provides instruction, Sherwin-Williams provides materials). Steve likes to be personally involved, because rather than admiring from afar, he gets to see the impact, and know that he contributed to it.

She heard about the program from a friend, told her mom about it, and has been actively involved ever since. Aaliyah is proud of how the program has taught her self-control, and how to deal with difficult people. Her mom is amazed by the “sisterhood cycles” that are transforming her daughter and the other girls in the program into young ladies, teaching them social skills and self-esteem, outreach and family support, education and arts, financial literacy, and health and wellness.

WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR HEALTH, YOU HAVE EVERYTHING Funding to Community Health and Behavioral Health programs help those who are chronically or terminally ill and those with physically disabling conditions, individuals with or at risk of chemical dependency or mental illness, and families and individuals experiencing violence and abuse. Programs provide intervention and support, offer education and information, help individuals and families identify the health and community services available to find the care they need, and provide medical assistance to the uninsured.
MEET MARY JO - UNITED WAY DONOR Mary Jo Lahiff Casey, Senior Vice President, Operations Excellence, PNC Bank Years ago, Mary Jo gave to United Way without giving it much thought. But when her middle son experienced speech problems, Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center, which receives funding from United Way, was there to help. Since then, she has been a huge advocate for United Way. But since everyone doesnâ€™t have such a personal connection to an individual agency, sheâ€™s grateful that United Way has the expertise to identify programs our community members need and allocate funds to enable those programs to make a difference.

MEET TEVIN - EARNEST STUDENT Assisted by United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland, Children’s Services Case Management Program As an infant, Tevin was ahead in terms of developmental milestones. At 16 months, a virus and high temperature changed things dramatically. He became non-responsive to sounds, did not talk, and was hypersensitive to some clothing items. Tevin’s mom Miriam sought help everywhere, and after much frustration, found the United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland (UCP) Children’s Services Case Management Program, where Tevin was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Years of therapy and loving care helped Tevin and his mom. “When we got here, Tevin could not talk or recognize himself in a photo, and he was sensitive to some items of clothing. Today, he can do those things and more, and he’s more open and accepting. Tevin deserves the same opportunities in life as any child, and thanks to the skilled and caring staff and incredible programs at UCP, he’s well on his way,” said mom.

AID FOR THOSE DEALING WITH LIFEâ€™S CHANGES AND CHALLENGES More than 260,000 senior citizens live in Cuyahoga County, along with hundreds of immigrants who are new to our community. Nearly $1.57 million of United Way funding provides assistance to these individuals, as well as aid to disaster victims. Several funded programs focus on maintaining independence for seniors as well as people living with disabilities. Support to refugees and immigrants includes assistance with housing, mastering English, employment and health care and introductions to the Northeast Ohio community that is now home.
MEET DIANA - UNITED WAY DONOR Diana Habbouche, Teller, KeyBank Diana is determined to do whatever she can to help those in need. A young working mother, her time and finances are stretched quite thin, but her desire to help is huge. From children to senior citizens, she knows the needs of many in our community are great, and that even the limited amount of time and money she can afford to spare now can help make their lives better. And sheâ€™s looking forward to the future, when she is able to share more of her time and resources.

MEET JEANNE - ACTIVE SENIOR Assisted by Senior Citizen Resources, Senior Transportation Jeanne has no family in the area, and for many years, her friends and colleagues at work were her family. But when she retired, she lost touch with them. Today, Jeanne depends on the Senior Transportation program of Senior Citizen Resources (SCR) for many things. The friendly drivers of the free van service take her to doctor’s appointments, drive Jeanne and other area seniors on fun trips to local museums and places of interest, and also transport her to SCR daily. While at SCR, Jeanne spends time with friends, enjoys a hot meal, participates in activities, and serves as a volunteer in support of various programs. Thanks to the van service and SCR, Jeanne has a very active social life and a large, extended family.

In 2011, United Way of Greater Cleveland invested $750,000 in three projects to address three specific areas of need in our community. United Way’s investment has leveraged an additional $1.3 million in investments from public and private sources for these projects. And United Way plays an active role in the ongoing implementation of these programs, bringing together people and resources to improve our community. GREATER CLEVELAND COORDINATED RE-ENTRY PROJECT In collaboration with the Cuyahoga County Office of Re-entry, United Way provided $250,000 in support and additional evaluation funding to the Center for Families and Children for the third year of the Re-Entry Project. It provides case management and treatment services to formerly incarcerated individuals and their

FAMILY STABILITY INITIATIVE In collaboration with the Siemer Family Foundation and the Cleveland Foundation, United Way provided $250,000 to support the United Way of Greater Cleveland Family Stability Initiative in partnership with Community Housing Solutions. The program is designed to assist qualified families with school-age children who own their homes and are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure, with the goal of enabling them to maintain housing stability and keep their children in the same school they’ve been attending.

CAPACITY BUILDING AND ORGANIZATIONAL ASSESSMENT
COMMUNITY INVESTMENT DIVISION CHAIR Steven R. Borstein
The Capacity Building Investment Committee focuses on programs that support the health and strength of our entire social service system. Programs funded to support the recruitment, training and placement of volunteers to aid the local nonprofit community include BVU: The Center for Nonprofit Excellence, Greater Cleveland Volunteers, HandsOn Northeast Ohio and the Neighborhood Leadership Institute. Funding also supports the Center for Community Solutions specific to health and social service research and advocacy, and Voices for Ohio’s Children for public policy advocacy for children. Part of the United Way promise to donors is the assurance that their generous donations are invested in sound programs provided by agencies that have the necessary tools to do this critical work. The Organizational Assessment (OA) Committee members are charged with keeping this promise. For a nonprofit organization to be successful, it needs a strong Board of Directors, appropriate systems and procedures, adequate funding, unquestionable financial management, qualified staff members and current technology. The OA Committee monitors the agencies that provide United Way funded programs annually to make sure these tools are in place. If problems are uncovered, the OA Committee works with the agency to help resolve them.

A MESSAGE FROM THE 2011/2012 CAMPAIGN CO-CHAIRS It has been an honor to lead the 2011 United Way of Greater Cleveland Campaign. Our work this past year will help fund 216 health and human service programs that will help more than 450,000 Greater Cleveland residents in the coming year. As we’ve led this campaign we have been able to get a better, up-close glimpse at many of the programs United Way funds. This personal look reinforces why we have worked so hard to continue our current level of funding to our community programs, while at the same time, trying to increase it. As Greater Clevelanders, we are fortunate to have a strong, solid network of services to pull from in these trying times. Many of the people we have met throughout this campaign have shared their stories of triumph, joy and pain as well as the promise of a better future United Way funded programs provided for their families. Your generosity has enabled United Way to fulfill that promise. Every donor is critically important to the health of our community. Although we have had the privilege to lead this effort, we could not have done it without the help of our campaign cabinet, a group of 150 volunteers who motivate more than 1,700 workplaces to participate in the campaign resulting in support from nearly 84,000 donors. What an impressive feat that could not have been accomplished without YOU. Thank you for your belief in Greater Cleveland. United Way helps you help our community.

HOW YOU GIVE
PACESETTERS Each year, Pacesetters get the annual United Way campaign off to a strong start by beginning their campaigns early (Pacesetter campaigns run from June – September), and setting ambitious goals of a minimum five percent increase in funds raised over the previous year. Pacesetters are dedicated to strengthening our community by setting the pace for the annual campaign. The 2011 Pacesetters were overachievers with 118 companies and organizations raising nearly $6.5 million, realizing 101 percent of their goal. Christopher M. Gorman, KeyBank Vice Chair, and Randall J. Korach, Tremco, Inc. President, served as co-chairs of the 2011 Pacesetter campaign.
LOANED EXECUTIVES Each year, area companies and organizations loan their employees or provide financial sponsorships to United Way’s Loaned Executive program. These Loaned Executives help increase awareness and manage all aspects of workplace campaigns including assisting with kickoffs and training sessions with workplace campaign volunteers. In 2011, 32 companies and organizations did their part to help make our community better, providing personnel in the form of 16 Loaned Executives and sponsorship support totaling $110,500. An additional 12 Loaned Executives worked on the Combined Federal Campaign. Stephen L. Buffo, Ernst & Young LLP Principal, and Gena C. Lovett, ALCOA Inc. Chief Diversity Officer, provided leadership as co-chairs of the Loaned Executive program.
THE NORTH COAST COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN The theme of the 2011 North Coast Combined Federal Campaign was “Step Up!” to let donors know they can personally bring about positive change by doing their part to help build a stronger community. More than 100 federal departments and agencies located throughout 21 counties participated in the North Coast Combined Federal Campaign that raised $2,195,000 in 2011. Our thanks to Todd S.

RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT Early in 2011, the Board of Directors approved $750,000 from the reserve account over the next three years to support the 27-page work plan developed under the leadership of Marc Byrnes, United Way Officer of the Board and Donor Relations Committee Chair and Oswald Companies Chairman and CEO. The plan is designed
that generated 312 proposals from United Way partner agencies and organizations specially invited to apply. Based on Organizational Assessment and Community Investment Committee reviews, United Way invested $18,172,860 in 216 programs at 109 health and human service organizations as well as three federated agencies throughout Cuyahoga County.
to increase workplace campaign participation by two percent and funds raised in the annual campaign and program support by several million dollars over the next three years. Strategies include enhanced cultivation of affinity groups and a planned giving program; a concentrated effort to engage midsize businesses; and boosting funds raised and campaign participation within current workplace campaigns.
COMMUNICATION AND BRANDING All United Way communications transitioned to reflect the new value proposition, “United Way of Greater Cleveland helps you help our community.” The major shift in the message is the focus moved from United Way (you should give to United Way because it helps people in need), to the donor (United Way is a trusted source that can help you help our community).

and realized many successes for the United Ways of Greater Cleveland, Geauga and Medina. Of the five focus areas, four had notable achievements. These include Organization and Culture, Operations and Process, Data, and Technology. The fifth area, which received limited attention during this second year of transition, is Engagement. This will be the primary focus throughout the third year.
TECHNOLOGY In conjunction with the Operations Technology Review Committee, United Way reviewed its alternatives relative to implementation of software to support the Relationship Management initiative and chose the Enterprise CRM module in conjunction with our current Enterprise application.
