THE

MISSION United Way of brevard

3.2.1...KicKoff Kennedy Space center ViSitor complex

September 19, 2013

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, NEARLY 300 LOCAL BUSINESSES AND 23,249 EMPLOYEES AND INDIVIDUALS SUPPORTED UNITED WAY; OUR COMMUNITY’S SINGLE LARGEST COMMUNITY FUNDRAISER GENERATED

$6,373,249 In addition to the annual fundraising campaign, your United Way, guided by a 51 member Board of Directors, sets community priorities for funding and additional leadership focus. In 2012, our United Way began a new strategic direction with a focus on the building blocks of a good life – Education, Income and Health (EIH). While we have just begun, we have accomplished much in the last 12 months. Some of our new EIH work is being completed by funded agencies, read on for some of the highlights from our United Way’s directly run EIH programs.


UNITED WAY ISN’T JUST HELPFUL TO OUR COMMUNITY, IT’S CRUCIAL. When it comes to the financial stability, education and health of a neighborhood, your United Way is working to figure out what our community needs to make real change. 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 the underlying causes of 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.


EDUCATION Quality education is the cornerstone of our new strategic direction. Research shows that a strong educational foundation leads to better employment opportunities and a more 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. The third grade reading FCAT scores for Brevard Public Schools reflect that overall, 64% of third graders passed, while only 40% of Brevard’s Black, non-Hispanic students passed. United Way’s strategies to address this challenge include greater access to books, expanding reading mentoring and reducing summer learning loss.

PILOT MENTORING PROGRAM In addition to giving kids anytime access to thousands of digital books, we’re helping our most vulnerable kids improve their reading skills by adding mentors to help them along the way. In the first year of the program:

1ST YEAR = 30 MENTORS

HELPED

120 STUDENTS

myON

SUMMER READING LOSS PREVENTION

myON is an online literacy tool that reinvents student reading. Through this subscription based service, we are giving students at seven of our most disadvantaged schools access to thousands of digital books with Lexile® assessments and growth forecasting.

Summer reading loss is a critical issue. Studies show that children can lose one to three months of learning over the summer. To combat the summer slide, Brevard Public Schools and United Way teamed up on the new initiative “Tag In”. The concept was simple – our teachers are ‘tagging out’ for the summer and parents must ‘tag in’ and strengthen their role as primary educators of their children. We distributed 38,000 summer reading loss prevention booklets to all elementary school and VPK students.

STUDENTS HAVE

READ OVER

60,000 BOOKS IN JUST THE FIRST SIX MONTHS

In addition, our United Way ran a summer long campaign which included radio, television and outdoor educational messages on the importance of reading over the summer. Lastly, we funded summer reading camps at 11 child care centers based on PBS’s successful “Super Why” program.


INCOME Without the ability to consistently pay their mortgage or rent, families may find it impossible to achieve a sense of security, let alone take the steps necessary to create a better life for themselves. That’s why our work in income is focused on helping people become financially stable through the following programs:

FINANCIAL CLASSES Nearly 575 people attended financial literacy classes taught by United Way staff. Individuals learned how to budget, save money and use credit wisely.

TAX PREP United Way volunteers prepared 2,305 tax returns for low-to-moderate income workers saving them the cost of tax preparation and helping them claim all the tax credits for which they are eligible. These efforts had community-wide impact of $2.5M (including $436,541 EITC and $579,250 saved in tax prep fees).

BENEFITS CONNECTION Our United Way, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, helped nearly 3,000 low-income individuals and families sign up for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This provided:

$2.4 MILLION TO BREVARD OF ECONOMIC BENEFIT


HEALTH Being healthy is vital, making it possible for our youth to be successful in school, individuals to be productive at work and for all to live a good life. Our United Way makes our community healthier by focusing our efforts on:

CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION Healthy Families is currently helping 168 families prevent child abuse and neglect, and promoting healthy child development thanks to $666,400 in funding from the Ounce of Prevention.

HUNGER Nearly 15,000 weekend backpack meals have been distributed thanks to our partnership with The Children’s Hunger Project, ensuring the free lunch provided at school on Friday is not the only meal a child eats until Monday.

FEED AND READ PROGRAM This cross promotional strategy which addresses summer hunger and reading loss provided 1,100 children a new book each week as well as a take-home meal if needed. We also provided trained reading mentors at 16 sites throughout our community.
