ANNUAL REPORT

2018-2019

FROM PRESIDENT & CEO BILL HARPER This annual report belongs to you. You the donor, the volunteer, the provider of services, the recipient of care, the board member, the employee, the collaborative partner, the leader, the advocate, and the bystander. Together, we have accomplished much but not enough. We have made a difference in the lives of many but not all of those in need. We have the right to be proud of our work while longing to do more. Collaboration is not easy. In fact, it is much harder than working independently. But in a culture that exalts competition, we believe that we can accomplish great things if we abandon our individual agendas, use a single set of goals, and measure results in the same way. This innovative approach allows us to align available resources, eliminate duplication of services, and fill in gaps as needed to efficiently provide high quality support to the people who need our help, while redesigning the system that is leading to people needing our help in the first place. Thank you for all who have helped us make this new way possible. If you haven’t joined us yet, it is not too late. There is plenty of work to be done. Sincerely,

United Way of Greater Lorain County
