2009 2012 2015

Dear Supporters and Community Members, On behalf of United Way of Olmsted County, thanks for your continued commitment and support. Three years ago, we launched a six year plan, and what we believe will be a nearly $20 million investment, to prepare our children to succeed in school and our youth to succeed in the community; to move working families toward financial stability; to improve the health of our community; and, to meet our neighbors’ basic needs of food, shelter, safety and inclusivity. Now at the half-way mark, we look at where we aspired to be and where we are. In many cases we are making great progress in strengthening our community. In every corner of Olmsted County, our volunteers, donors and advocates invest their passion, their expertise and their resources to create opportunities for a better life for all. Ours is a dynamic community. There are more people who call Olmsted County home than there were three years ago. There are more children who qualify for free and reduced lunch. There are more children under the age of five eligible for enrollment in the Imagination Library. Though unemployment is low, underemployment is affecting many working families who struggle to reach and sustain financial independence. United Way of Olmsted County envisions a county that is supportive, safe, healthy and welcoming, where individuals and families are thriving and full of hope. It’s what we all want. We are all connected, interdependent. To create real, lasting change in our community, it will take all of us living united. Start now by volunteering, lending your voice, and giving! Throughout this report you’ll read more about our reach and impact. You will learn about the ways in which our collective work is working and the ways in which our work needs more collective work. Get engaged, visit our website, and make a difference. Change the world. Start right here. Start right now. You have our continued promise that we will be good stewards of your trust in us to do all that we can together to advance the common good.

GOOD Education

2009 2012 2015

Supporting learning and development of children and youth so they become responsible, contributing citizens.

Anyone working to improve education understands that it’s a cradle-to-career undertaking. Education starts at birth, and children learn wherever they are. In partnership with many community organizations, United Way of Olmsted County has been working on a few education strategies against which we can execute forcefully. Our Education Solution team, a group of local education leaders chose two focus areas -early childhood literacy and connecting youth to their community - and then drilled down into each to understand and identify: • Critical obstacles and underlying issues to achieving the desired outcome; • Evidence-based community strategies that can address the underlying issues; • Meaningful roles that United Way could play in support of the community strategies. Out of this emerged three targets for 2015: 1) 75% of Olmsted County children achieve development milestones and pass kindergarten assessment. 2) 3,330 low-income youth connect to caring adults and community. 3) 3,330 low-income youth demonstrate leadership in the community. So, how are we doing? We think we need to do much better.


United Way of Olmsted County

Though there are proven methods to boost students’ literacy skills, the challenge is bringing these methods to more children. While over 80% of children who are part of the United Way partner programs achieved development milestones and passed their kindergarten assessment, in 2012, only 54% of all Olmsted County children achieved development milestones and passed their kindergarten assessment. We also know that from cradle to career, a student connected with caring adults does better in school today and builds a better life tomorrow. Here again, reaching more children with mentoring and other programs remains a challenge. There are simply more youth in need of mentors than we have mentors for these youth. Even now, United Way volunteers and community partners are coming together to look at what we need to do differently and better over the next three years to bring the strategies that are working to scale. Anyone working to improve education understands it will take all of us to succeed.

Since June 2006, 363,607 books delivered to 15,386 children. Not so long ago, when we asked people if they had heard about the Imagination Library, more often than not, they would say no. These days, without asking, we hear how much the children love their books! The Imagination Library is an early literacy program we know has a positive impact on the lives of children - and their parents. Where children are receiving this free monthly, age appropriate book, we know their parents are reading to them more and are more aware of their children’s reading. Both are important indicators of improved childhood literacy. By 2015, we want to have at least 75% of the eligible children enrolled and receiving books. We are at 52% and as of the 2010 Census, we now know there are even more children we need to reach.

Community Gang Initiative & Operation Starfish Connecting young people with caring adults is a core strategy that works. Investments of patience, persistence, perserverance, and a passion for making a difference pays dividends in young people who see a future for themselves they did not believe possible. That vision doesn’t just breed hope, it builds determination. The Community Gang Initiative brings together a cross section of public, private, and nonprofit groups to work together to provide opportunities for young people who face some very difficult challenges. Operation Starfish is one recent outcome of this collective effort. This project assists youth ages 17 to 21 with job mentoring, job training, and work experience. In its first two years, 13 youth have completed internships. Of these, 5 found full-time employment. Two others found part-time employment. All 13 found out life has more to offer than they thought possible.



GOOD Income

2009 2012 2015

Increasing income assets and providing job training for improved employability.

The cost of housing, health care, child care, gas and other basics is far surpassing income in America. Many families are barely getting by, even working multiple jobs. Over the past 20 years, the cost of living in the United States has increased almost 90 percent, drastically outpacing income growth. Just one unanticipated expense – a car breakdown, an uninsured illness, a week without a paycheck – can lead to crisis. The situation is most critical for lowerincome working families. Note the emphasis on working families – those in which one or two adults together work the equivalent of a full-time job or more but still don’t earn enough to make ends meet. “In Olmsted County, 37 percent of workers work only part-time or part of the year, or both,” according to Phil Wheeler, director of the Rochester/Olmsted Planning department, “Many of these workers work multiple jobs, and more than 12,000 jobs in Olmsted County pay less than $10 per hour. A majority of the people in the labor force who are in poverty are employed.” Achieving greater financial stability allows lower income working families to move toward financial independence. The cornerstone of financial stability is family- sustaining


United Way of Olmsted County

employment which is why increasing income assets and providing job training for improved employability are cornerstone strategies for United Way of Olmsted County. In the first three years of our sixyear effort, 238 families achieved stabilization and are building assets. At our half-way mark we are at 75% of our goal to provide financial literacy skills to 790 people by 2015. The Financial Stability Partnership helps eligible Olmsted County wage earners to receive quality tax preparation and income-building opportunities to start them on the road to financial stability and to strengthen the economy of our Olmsted County community. In the past three years, 2,780 working families have received $4,426,568 in Earned Income Tax Credits through a United WayAARP partnership providing tax preparation services. 161 persons have completed job training and gained employment at greater than $10 per hour at a company that also provides health insurance. By 2015, our goal is to take this number to 400.

Family-sustaining employment is the cornerstone of financial stability. As part of our financial stability initiative, United Way of Olmsted County supports students participation in a number of vocational training initiatives. Working through the Job Training Collaborative Partnership (Catholic Charities; Express Personnel; Hawthorne Education Center; Hiawatha Homes; International Mutual Assistance Association; Kelly Services; Lutheran Social Services Link Program; MN Department of Education and Economic Development; MN Department of Transportation; Rochester Community and Technical College; United Way of Olmsted County; Workforce Development, Inc.), we identify areas

of current or expected hiring in the community. Then, working with employers like McNeilus, Crenlo, and others, curriculum is designed to provide a solid foundation for careers in that industry. Past programs have been held in welding, soldering, building utilities maintenance, and customer service.

“The best anti-poverty, the best pro-family, the best job creation measure to come out of Congress.” That’s what President Ronald Reagan called the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Here’s what EITC has meant right here in the past three years:

$4,426,568 came back to Olmsted County from 2,780 returns filed by working families. These families received free tax preparation through the efforts of the Financial Stability Partnership joining with the tax preparation services provided by the AARP Tax-Aide Program, The Salvation Army, and the Senior Center, as well as the Internal Revenue Service and the Minnesota Department of Revenue.



GOOD Health

2009 2012 2015

People achieve optimal health through promoting wellness and health care access.

Good health is fundamental to people’s capacity to enjoy their lives, to provide for their families, to realize their dreams and to contribute to society. The solution goes well beyond medical care and the health care system. Good health depends on personal choice and responsibility. People’s health behaviors are also shaped by conditions over which they as individuals have little or no control. The impact of ill health goes far beyond the individual. With medical insurance costs growing faster than our GDP, preventing disease is one of the best ways to improve the health of the American economy and our people. Both public and private sectors are recognizing major underlying factors that affect health and the roles they can play to contribute to the solution. United Way of Olmsted County donors, advocates, and volunteers are making a difference in health. With funding awards to partners that support programs and initiatives that mobilize resources and volunteers, we are contributing to a supportive and healthy community.


United Way of Olmsted County

The quality of life for all of us is connected in important ways to the health and health care available to all of us.

9,467 Since 2010, the number of uninsured people receiving early interventions for mental illness in a community setting.

Leveraging technology and collaboration to promote healthy behaviors.

your wellness line

Adults find it difficult to hold a job when they are not healthy.

United Way 2-1-1 is a free and confidential community helpline available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It helps people access information they need to navigate the ever increasing and complex array of health, human, and community services.

The uninsured are less likely to access preventive care or seek early treatment of an illness and therefore may miss more time at work or school.

Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) helps Minnesotans lead longer, healthier lives by preventing the chronic disease risk factors associated with tobacco use and exposure, poor nutrition and physical inactivity. SHIP is a collaborative process of community partners working across school, worksite, community, and healthcare settings.

Healthy children miss fewer days of school and are better prepared to learn.

Using health care appropriately, instead of the ER in nonemergencies, lowers the cost of health care for everyone. Untreated mental health issues interfere with academic achievement, employment, and housing. In the past three years: Our partners have helped 6,276 people obtain or retain health insurance. 6,233 uninsured 3-14 year olds received preventive dental care and education. 10,307 uninsured residents received basic health care. * numbers above may include duplication of service recipients

Get well connected.

The SHIP Healthy Behavior Initiative works to improve systems support and resources for healthcare professionals to improve referrals to lifestyle change resources for healthy eating, physical activity and tobacco cessation. After exploring various other database options, Mayo Clinic and other Olmsted County SHIP partners decided to work with United Way of Olmsted County to develop a healthy behavior referral database. Leveraging existing 2-1-1 resources and infrastructure, United Way 2-1-1 added a “Wellness Line” (healthy behavior resources) to the service. Then, partnering with the Community Healthcare Access Collaborative, United Way of Olmsted County helped develop a plan to increase awareness and use of the 2-1-1 line.

Coming in 2013: continued healthy collaborations. In 2012, United Way of Olmsted County was asked to participate in drafting a set of potential indicators for a community health needs assessment and improvement plan (CHNA) initiated by Olmsted County Public Health Services, Olmsted Medical Center, and the Mayo Clinic. As the CHNA project enters its next phase of assessing and prioritizing these indicators, United Way of Olmsted County will continue to play a role in this planning process. When the CHNA results become known in late 2013, we will begin to align our health efforts to this countywide strategy.



GOOD Community Basics

2009 2012 2015

Helping meet basic needs of people and stabilizing lives with a “safety net”.

Andrew Carnegie observed that “the best means of benefiting the community is to place within its reach the ladders upon which the aspiring can rise.” Education, Income, and Health at United Way of Olmsted County, we think of these as our “ladder” strategies. However, meeting basic needs is a first and necessary step. When basics needs are being met the next step can be a step up. So, in addition to the “ladders”, communities need to maintain a “safety net” of support for individuals and families in times of economic dislocation from job loss, health challenges, family strife, or any number of other challenges that life can place before us. Most of those who use these services are working. In some cases, these services help them continue to work. Additionally, these supports allow people with disabilities to attain a larger measure of independent living and participate in the working life of the community. United Way of Olmsted County also supports programs that enable seniors to remain in their homes longer, continuing to live relatively independent lives. Over the past three years, in a economy that has challenged all of us, we have supported the


United Way of Olmsted County

work of providing literally millions of nutritous meals. In the past three years, 868 people accessed immediate shelter. Though the situation is closely tied to the economy, over the past three years 1,427 people with disabilities have been integrated into our community through employment and other life skills support. That’s about half the annual rate we would like to see but the trend is improving. Where seniors are concerned, our 2015 goal is to reduce the costs of services that allow them to remain living independently by providing 50% of the service hours required with volunteers. Our three-year average is just below 30%.

Being “smarter” about advancing the common good helps advance the common good. IBM is working with United Way of Olmsted County and its partners to create the Community Information Sharing System (CISS); a “smarter” solution producing better data analytics that makes smarter decisionmaking possible in the social service sector. CISS makes it possible for clients receiving goods or services from partnering agencies to have their basic information collected only once. This one-time intake provides clients with greater ease of access and reduces wait times for the services they receive. CISS allows participating agencies to serve clients more effectively while at the same time collecting data useful for measuring progress toward community goals, quantifying local needs, evaluating community-wide initiatives and allocating community resources. Currently, more than 16,000 Olmsted County households are part of the CISS project. The more than 20 participating agencies include Channel One Food Shelf, Salvation Army and Family Service Rochester. CISS results to date are impressive. For example, Channel One Food Shelf has reduced their client intake time from waiting in line from up to 1 ½ hours to just minutes! The time savings enables Channel One to reallocate staff to work deeper with about 20% of their most dependent clients. Throughout the system, partners replace redundant client intake with better client support and referrals. Agency information technology expenses are reduced as well. Time for direct delivery of services is increased. Even more importantly, clients access services with efficiency and greater dignity.

As with all of our work, our own volunteers are continually assessing our efforts and looking to improve them when necessary. At the halfway mark in community basics, in those areas where we are tracking behind where we aspire to be, our partners and solution teams are working on the innovations and enhanced collaborations “getting it done” will require.

LIVE UNITED ADVOCATE Speaking out Speaking up Speaking with

Participating in and convening public discussions on the challenges facing our community is fundamental to United Way of Olmsted County’s ability to achieve community impact. We are most effective when we bring together the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to identify new and innovative solutions to ensure that the needs of all community members are adequately considered and addressed. In the realm of public policy, we stay current on legislation, regulatory standards, and other government policies and programs: • that help us achieve our goals; • that address issues in education, income, health, and community basics; • that affect giving, advocacy, or volunteering. In doing so, we are committed to non-partisan, outcome-based policies that further the goals established by our volunteers. (We do not endorse candidates for office.) Whether we are meeting with State Senator Carla Nelson on early childhood literacy, briefing State Representative Tina Liebling about our work, or speaking with U.S. Senator Al Franken as he

visits a Running Start for School distribution site, our goal is to educate and seek support for those issues our community tells us are important. In recent years these issues have included: maintaining the tax exempt status of nonprofit organizations; protecting the charitable tax deduction; ending the Minnesota state government shutdown; extending 2-1-1 services; and, securing disaster relief and recovery support. An important part of advocacy is providing access to sources of information on issues, conditions, and trends related to advancing the common good in Olmsted County. With a commitment to advocacy, United Way of Olmsted County enables you to make a difference right where you live - in Olmsted County, in Minnesota, in the United States of America, and increasingly, in the World.

Information you can use available on our website. The Common Good Forecaster, created by United Way World Wide and the American Human Development Project, forecasts how things might change in our communities if educational outcomes were better. Minnesota Compass measures progress in our state, tracking trends in topic areas such as education, economy and workforce, health, housing, public safety, and a host of others. The Opportunity Index is a guide for measuring and improving opportunity. Economy, Education and Community Health and Civic Life are used to calculate the overall Opportunity Score. GIVE. ADVOCATE.

LIVE UNITED VOLUNTEER People with the passion and the expertise to get things done.

For over 85 years, the civic philanthropy and community engagement of United Way of Olmsted County has been accomplished by dedicated volunteers. At United Way of Olmsted County volunteers raise the money. Volunteers assess needs, set priorities, establish goals, discuss strategies, review funding requests, award funds, monitor results, and govern the organization. Volunteers collect, sort, and distribute school supplies and winter outer wear. Volunteers assist in free tax preparation. A volunteer manages the day-today operations of the Imagination Library. And, of course, a volunteer helps operate the Volunteer Center. As a result of our contributions to the August 2007 flood response, United Way of Olmsted County is now part of the Olmsted County Disaster Response and Volunteer Coordination. We coordinated volunteer flood response in 2010 and provided technical assistance to the United Way of Greater Duluth as it responded to the flooding of 2012.

We partnered with IBM as part of their Centennial Day of Service. With a commitment to volunteerism, United Way of Olmsted County enables you to make a difference right where you live with opportunities for service that are appropriate, meaningful, and rewarding. In 2010, our 300 Volunteers Campaign recruited volunteers to work with students and seniors, and to train for disaster response. Early in 2012, we launched the Readers, Tutors, Mentors campaign to recruit voluteers to work with Olmsted County youthserving organizations and school districts.

In the years 2009 through 2011

8,369 volunteers provided

39,403 hours of service to United Way of Olmsted County valued at


This fall we are partnering with the Rochester School District for the first We Want You Back Day by recruiting volunteers to call on high school students who did not return for the 2012 - 2013 school year.

Our Volunteer Center supports the work of nonprofit organizations throughout southeast Minnesota.
