ADVANCING EDUCATION, INCOME AND HEALTH
United Way is committed to mobilizing the caring power of our community to advance education, income and health for a greater Cleveland. It is our aspiration to create a community where every child graduates, every family achieves financial stability, and everyone has good health. To better describe our work, in October 2012, the United Way board of directors adopted the name “Community Impact” for our investment division and transitioned our investment areas to education, income and health. The health and human service programs United Way currently funds have been reclassified into these impact areas for the final year of the current three-year funding cycle. And the Community Impact volunteers are in the process of reorganizing their work into these areas. The chart to the right provides a detailed accounting of how your contributions to United Way have been invested. For a complete list of United Way funded programs, visit UnitedWayCleveland.org.

MENTORS PROVIDE HOPE Alex knows how it feels to not have friends or anyone to turn to for help. He and his mother came to the U.S. with his sister, who was in need of Cleveland’s world-renowned health care. While his sister received the care she needed, Alex struggled to find his way in this unfamiliar place. But once he started school, he quickly became involved in Esperanza, Inc.’s Youth Leadership Program (EYLP), which serves Hispanic high school students via an after-school program. There he was given leadership opportunities through community service, academic support and life and employment skills. Now as an adult, Alex wanted to share the benefits he received so he became an EYLP mentor. One year ago, he met Noslen, who had recently started 10th grade at Cleveland’s Thomas Jefferson International Newcomers Academy. Alex was paired with Noslen because they share similar backgrounds, interests and goals. They spend time together each week participating in recreational and sporting activities, visiting colleges and sharing experiences. Esperanza means “hope,” which is what Alex received from Esperanza, Inc., and what he is passing on to Noslen, whose English and grades continue to improve, and who now has a plan for his future. And Noslen is already determined to do the same, stating “Someday, I want to be a mentor to another young person. When I do, I’ll tell them to never give up, that it is possible to enjoy your life and realize your dreams.” United Way of Greater Cleveland is committed to helping every child graduate. Currently, United Way sponsors 19 youth development programs throughout the city, contributing educational guidance, strong relationships through mentoring and more. Programs like EYLP are vital in helping young Clevelanders develop a positive outlook for their futures.

JUST A LITTLE HELP CAN CHANGE LIVES After searching for employment for months, The Center for Workforce Development at El Barrio helped a very frustrated but determined Angie Lawrence find not just a job, but a career. Angie joined El Barrio’s Job Readiness/Job Search program, which attracts an average of 40 job seekers every two weeks. She learned how to complete applications, answer interview questions and basic computer skills to aid her online job search. Additionally, financial literacy skills and the importance of saving were emphasized to help participants once they land jobs. Despite years of factory work experience, Angie could not secure employment. Upon completion of the job readiness program, she interviewed with Mar-Bal, a local manufacturing company which has a relationship with El Barrio, and was hired two days later. Her new employer recognized her work ethic and determination to succeed – it was a perfect match with the employer’s needs. Today, one year later, she’s learned how to operate virtually every piece of equipment at the plant and is often called upon to train new hires. Angie is enjoying her success but hasn’t forgotten the help she received. She often stops by the El Barrio offices to provide encouragement to those currently seeking employment, telling them to “take this process seriously, and do what they tell you here because if you do, you WILL find a job.” Angie’s story is just one of hundreds taking place in Greater Cleveland every day. United Way of Greater Cleveland is committed to advancing income in our community by helping individuals and families achieve and maintain financial stability. United Way supports approximately 21 job training programs and six financial literacy programs.

FROM FRUSTRATION TO JOY DaWanda Meredith had reached her breaking point. Her 12-year-old son, DaJuan, was performing poorly and getting in trouble at school, acting out in anger and losing friends as a result. “All I wanted was for my son to be able to sit still, sleep through the night, have a good day in school and make friends again,” she said. That’s when she called the Murtis Taylor Child Behavioral Healthcare program. Following an initial assessment and diagnosis, a treatment plan was developed for DaJuan including medication and regular interaction with Pola Vargas, a community psychiatric support treatment worker and case manager. Pola contacts DaJuan at least once a week. She also interacts with DaJuan’s teacher to ensure he is progressing in school. DaJuan didn’t like school. He was afraid and embarrassed to ask for help. With Pola’s help, he has overcome his fears. “Once I learned it was OK to ask for help, I started thinking differently,” said DaJuan. Now in the seventh grade, his mom is no longer getting calls from the principal, and rather than spending his time fighting, DaJuan is focused on learning – math is his favorite subject. “Pola loves my son as if he were her own child,” said DaWanda. “She helps take some of the burden off of me, as there are times when she can talk to DaJuan better than I can. In a short time, she has helped my son become much more open and focused.” United Way of Greater Cleveland invests more than $2.5 million in behavioral health services for adults and children like DaJuan – with or at risk of mental illness. United Way supports approximately 35 programs striving to improve the mental, emotional and physical health of individuals in Greater Cleveland.

STAYING ACTIVE AND CONNECTED = HEALTHY AGING “The computer classes have helped light my way into the 21st century!” says 65-year-old Edith Valentine about her participation in the University Settlement Adult Wellness Program serving seniors age 60+ and adults with disabilities living in Cleveland’s Broadway/Slavic Village neighborhood. As we age, it can become difficult to keep up with our constantly changing world. The computer classes teach Edith and other area seniors how to connect to family members and friends as well as access all types of information via their computers. The Adult Wellness Program also provides social activities, transportation and more to help keep seniors active and healthy. Edith first became acquainted with University Settlement 30 years ago, when she participated in a program geared to first-time home buyers. She lives in the same home she purchased with their help today. And Edith now has a computer at home. Thanks to her involvement with University Settlement, she and her classmates have been introduced to social media. During a recent gathering they explored search engines to find healthy recipes for use in a bake club and in a diabetes cookbook. “Many of my family members live out of town, and in the past the only time I had contact with them was at weddings and funerals,” said Edith. “Now, I stay in touch regularly with email and Facebook. Just the other day, I was able to see a photo of my granddaughter in her new glasses.” Many of the 250,000 senior citizens in Cuyahoga County reap benefits from more than 20 United Way-sponsored programs and services. These programs have a wide spectrum of services from transportation to technology. United Way is committed to programs allowing seniors to live as educated, independent and engaged members of their communities.
