ACHIEVING THE MISSION Our mission is to be Brevard’s leader in mobilizing the caring power of our community. To accomplish our mission, United Way of Brevard coordinates an annual fundraising campaign and strategically distributes funds to local programs based on the potential return on investment and quantifiable results. Last year alone, 284 local businesses and 23,907 employees and individuals supported United Way.

YOUR INVESTMENT INSPIRES US TO

GO BEYOND

“WHAT IS”

AND STRIVE FOR WHAT OUR COMMUNITY CAN AND SHOULD BE Our goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing community problems. To do that, we must look ‘upstream’ at what it takes to ensure our friends and neighbors have the foundation to create a successful life for themselves and their families. That’s why our work focuses on the building blocks of a good life – Education, Income and Health. Our community wins when kids succeed in school, adults can secure a good job, manage their finances, and provide a healthy environment for their families. Together, through United Way, the contributions of thousands of individual donors become a force for change in the community. We can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.


BUILDING BLOCKS FOR A GOOD LIFE

myON is the world’s largest interactive digital library. After it was successfully introduced by United Way, Brevard Public Schools expanded the program to nearly all Title 1 elementary schools.

QUALITY EDUCATION IS THE CORNERSTONE OF OUR NEW STRATEGIC DIRECTION. R ES EA R C H S H OWS

In 2014-2015, over 20,000 Brevard students read more than 200,000 digital books.

MENTORING PROGRAM There are over 150 United Way reading mentors at nine local elementary schools serving as positive role models for our at-risk youth. That’s 120 more volunteers than last year!

A strong educational foundation leads to even better employment opportunities and an increasingly competitive workforce. Higher educational attainment is a direct corollary to higher income, better health and a host of other factors that make individuals and communities more productive.

SUMMER READING LOSS PREVENTION United Way, in partnership with Brevard Public Schools, launched the second successful year of a community-wide awareness campaign to keep kids reading over the summer.

1. myON summer reading winners celebrated.

United Way’s educational strategies include greater access to books, expanding reading mentoring and reducing summer learning loss.

2. Did you know in Brevard 4,700 students missed more than 21 days of school last year? That’s why we gave students at Emma Jewel alarm clocks to help them get up and get the day started off right. 3. Kids have 24/7 unlimited, anytime, anywhere access to books on myON. 4. Space Florida volunteered to read to kids at United Way’s Feed and Read site. 5. As part of a summer reading contest, 1,737 students at 59 elementary schools read and celebrated with ice cream parties.

HEALTH CARE ACCESS/LITERACY United Way assists consumers, small businesses and their employees in signing up for coverage with the online Health Insurance Marketplace. Navigators completed the enrollment process for 775 families and held 210 outreach events.

BEING HEALTHY IS VITAL, MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR: SUCCESS IN SCHOOL STAYING PRODUCTIVE AT WORK AND FOR ALL TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE Our United Way works to make our community healthier by focusing our efforts on programs that are preventing child abuse, reducing hunger and ensuring our community can not only access much needed health insurance, but also understand how to make the best use of their health insurance benefits.

CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION $696,400 in funding from the Ounce of Prevention has helped 217 families prevent child abuse and neglect and promoted healthy child development.

FEED AND READ PROGRAM This cross promotional strategy addressing summer hunger and reading loss has provided 2,100 community children with books each week, take-home meals and trained reading mentors. Over 10,000 books were distributed.

1. United Way provided professionally trained HealthCare.gov Navigators to help people in our community enroll in affordable, quality health plans via the Health Insurance Marketplace. 2. Each week of summer break kids at the Feed and Read sites selected a new book to take home. 3. Volunteers packed weekend meals for kids to take home at the Feed and Read sites. 4. Thanks to Project Hunger, we added fresh fruits and vegetables as part of our Feed and Read program. 5. Emerging Leaders ensured kids didn’t go hungry over the weekend.
