UNITED WAY OF RACINE COUNTY

2010 ANNUAL REPORT

TO THE COMMUNITY

UNITEDWAYRACINE.ORG

TM


> MESSAGE FROM LEADERSHIP The past year continued to challenge thousands of families in Racine County who struggled financially and particularly for those who were still seeking work after years of relative stability. Yet, many people who have seen their own assets depreciate over several years, however modest their previous savings, continued to support our efforts to advance the common good through their contributions of money, time and talent to United Way. For that generosity of spirit and financial support, and the incredible resiliency and compassion of our neighbors and friends, we are deeply grateful. For the first time since 2007, our annual campaign results exceeded the previous year with more than $5,000,000 being pledged through the campaign and through the financial support of special initiatives. We send a special thank you to John Erskine, Chairman of Racine Federated, for his leadership in the 2010 campaign and his exemplary call to “do everything you can do, and then just do one more thing.” John and his colleagues keep United Way in their hearts and minds year-round and that is the continuing challenge for our entire community. We think this Annual Report is worth your time to read and will give you an even better understanding of the incredible value United Way provides to our community – made possible by our volunteers, partner organizations, advocates, staff and donors.

Sincerely,

Francisco Sanchez Board Chair

> EDUCATION United Way invests in programs that prepare children for productive adulthood. Some programs work to build academic skills while many other programs occur as afterschool or weekend activities. Children who are engaged in safe, structured programs outside of the school day tend to do better in school in terms of attendance, discipline and academic achievement. The Caring for Kids Committee provided $733,292 to support programs for children in the areas of education, health and social development. Other United Way committees awarded an additional $14,308 to special projects for children and youth in the areas of youth leadership, job training and recreation. To make sure that youth, parents, educators and other youth development professionals are aware of afterschool, weekend and summer programs for school-age children in the greater Racine area, United Way continues to manage the informational website, Racine Afterschool. Visit http://racineafterschool.unitedwayracine.org to check out programs, events and resources.

Through grant making and community service, Youth As Resources (YAR) empowers young people to make a positive difference in their communities. YAR awards grants to groups of youth that want to perform community service projects in Racine County. The projects must be youth designed, youth implemented, and address specific community needs or problems. During 2010, YAR board members volunteered at the seasonal opening of the Root River Environmental Education Community Center and helped run children’s activities at an AFA Holiday Party. The YAR communications committee completed their annual project of designing and distributing cards to local florists for prom flower orders reminding students not to drink and drive after prom. Youth As Resources had three grant deadlines during 2010 and funded nine projects totaling $7,834. Since 1996, YAR has awarded nearly $250,000 for 376 community service projects that address a variety of local needs.

2010 YAR Funded Projects “Medicine Wheel Garden” – Girl Scout Troop 5536 “Joining Generations Fiesta” – Racine Family Literacy Youth “Dogs and Cats Galore” – Girl Scout Troop 5754 “Tree Kiosk” – Boy Scout Troop 334 “Day at the County Fair” – Big Sisters of Racine, Inc. “Walden Wheels” – Walden III High School Study Group 316 “Roots” – Racine Urban Garden Youth Committee “Construction for Instruction” – Mitchell Middle School Science Sisters Creating Jammin’ Walls “Recycling Initiative” – Case High School Team Recycle

> INCOME United Way helps individuals and families become financially stable and independent by investing in programs and activities that give people new knowledge, skills and opportunities to improve their current situation. The Supporting Self-Sufficiency Committee awarded $727,596 in programs and services that help individuals and families achieve maximum independence through emergency support, education, training, and other supportive services. In addition to this annual funding of Partner Provider programs, United Way invested $22,737 in programs and events that help meet basic needs of Racine County residents.

OTHER AREAS OF INVESTMENT United Way of Racine County promotes networking among members of the human service community and shares information in ways that support United Way core strategies related to community investment and community impact agenda.

Education, income and health are the building blocks for a good life that many Racine County families lack. In order to provide information to the community about these key areas, United Way compiled research and created the 2011 United Way of Racine County Community Indicators Report. Some key points are: • Seventy-three percent of children in Racine County qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program. • It costs $55,161 annually for a family of four in Racine County to meet basic living expenses, yet two adults working full-time, minimum-wage jobs only make $30,160. • Twenty-four thousand Racine County residents live in poverty, unable to lead self-sufficient lives.

> HEALTH United Way supports efforts to improve the health of Racine County residents, from birth through adulthood. While the ultimate desired outcome of United Way’s Success by 6 is that young children enter school ready to succeed, the Success by 6 Committee works toward this by focusing on the healthy development of children, birth to six. In 2010, $298,107 was invested in several programs that increase parent and other caregiver knowledge of early childhood development through workshops, classes and home visitation. School-age children benefit from United Way funded programs that help build healthy habits and keep children safe. The Caring for Kids Committee awarded $388,000 in programs and counseling to help youth and their families in the area of health. Other health-related issues include safety, mental wellness, access to health care and support for special needs or elderly populations. The Supporting Self-Sufficiency Committee provided funding of $742,944 to 12 programs that address those issues, with another $15,905 awarded through other United Way committees.

No one should be forced to choose between paying for food, rent or medicine because of the high cost of prescriptions. That’s why United Way partnered with FamilyWize to make the prescription discount cards available to everyone in Racine County. United Way of Racine County joined over 900 other United Ways in all 50 states whose communities have already saved more than $100 million on prescriptions. Total savings in our community is more than $42,000. The cards are available for everyone to use – they are free, have unlimited use, are accepted at 95 percent of pharmacies, have no age or income restrictions, and have no enrollment.

> ADVANCING FAMILY ASSETS Key Strategies for Families INCOME: Establish durable connections between families and the mainstream economy. In order for families to fully participate in the mainstream economy, households must have adequate income to support all family members. Family income may be generated through jobs or accessing benefits to which they are entitled. Families must also be able to build and protect their assets through increased financial literacy skills and to maintain their assets of home or vehicle. EDUCATION: Advance individuals’ potential to achieve academic/ vocational success.

Advancing Family Assets (AFA) is a community impact initiative of United Way of Racine County working in partnership with other organizations to improve lives of low-wage working families and to ensure a quality workforce throughout Racine County.

Adults and children need to continue gaining knowledge and skills that ultimately lead to productive lives. All children need positive preschool and afterschool experiences while adults may participate in training programs. Family members are connected to local educational resources.

Advancing Family Assets supports low-income families through an intensive coaching approach that works to alleviate problems in the areas of income, education and health while helping all family members focus on their best possible futures: adults get jobs or better jobs, families manage their money better, young children get preschool experiences preparing them for success in kindergarten, kids do better in school and participate in afterschool activities, family members learn to get along with each other, and all members practice healthy lifestyles. These conditions and behaviors give families the best chance for success.

HEALTH: Assist families in maintaining healthy relationships and lifestyles. All members of the family experience success in various aspects of their lives, from school to work to home life, when they build healthy habits and demonstrate positive relationships in the household. Families need to gain new knowledge and skills to develop healthy lifestyles.

9 United Way of Racine County • 2010 Annual Report

Advancing Family Assets ensures the provision of high-quality coaching services with Individual Success Plans, jointly developed with AFA family members, that address the whole person/family across life domains and systems related to income, education and health. Our thanks to the City of Racine, Racine Community Foundation, Racine County, Racine Federated, and WE Energies for their financial assistance and ongoing support of AFA. By 2020, Advancing Family Assets will have measurably increased the financial and family stability of at least 500 families in Racine County, achieving a variety of positive outcomes within the families that will increase the number of reliable and productive workers, ultimately reducing the incidence of poverty in our communities.


> FAMILY SUCCESS. Upon enrollment of the “G” Family into AFA, the single mother of three girls set lofty educational goals for herself and her children. She desperately wanted to get her daughters back on track at school, as well as further her own education. The mother shared her goals with her AFA Family Success Coach and together they developed a plan which included a team meeting with Mom, the teachers, school social worker and the AFA coach to discuss the girls’ grades and behavior. The AFA coach shadowed and observed the girls at school for a month to provide an unbiased perspective of the situation and to relieve Mom of the need to take off time from work. Additionally, the AFA coach provided homework assistance on major projects. As a result, Mom acknowledged what she and her girls could do differently and ultimately improved communication with the school staff. During the last grading period, all three girls received high marks on their report cards with few behavioral incidents. Mom also holds herself to high educational standards. She is now a proud Carthage College student who successfully balances the demands of school, work and being a single mother.

In July, Advancing Family Assets moved to its new office and meeting space at 1220 Villa Street, across from St. Catherine’s High School in Racine. The ground level of the facility is the family meeting space which includes a conference area, computer workstations for families, an activity area for children and a resource library for the staff and families. The staff offices are located on the second floor. We are thankful for all the assistance from the St. Catherine’s High School Alumni Association - Friends of Angels. The contributions of various corporate and private donors made it possible for AFA to fully furnish and decorate the family meeting space and staff offices. Donors include Johnson Bank, Modine, Tri City National Bank, Diversey, Racine County Food Bank, and many caring members of the Racine community. For AFA, the space is much more than a facility. It is a symbol of growth and stability, indicative of the commitment of United Way and the community to serving working families.

> WESTERN RACINE COUNTY Racine County is a unique and beautiful place. United Way recognizes the differences that exist among our diverse communities and is committed to enriching the lives of children and families throughout Racine County. Since 2009, United Way has maintained a satellite office in western Racine County. The office at 615 North Pine Street in Burlington has allowed us to have an increased presence west of I-94 and strengthen partnerships with local organizations. In 2010, two new part-time staff came on board as Western Racine County Associates, Joanee Meyerhofer and Colleen Benkendorf. Colleen’s focus is to maintain our community presence in western Racine County while Joanee is continuing to build the Imagination Library program. Both of them are helping to maintain a pulse on the area’s most pressing issues and concerns.

Joanee Meyerhofer (left) and Colleen Benkendorf (right) present a check for Christmas food baskets to Bill Schoessling, Love, Inc.

Each year United Way invests more than $500,000 in programs, services and special projects that touch the lives of approximately 10,000 residents in the communities west of I-94. The allocation process is managed by the Western Racine Advisory committee comprised of individuals who work and live in or around the areas of Burlington, Union Grove and Waterford.

Imagination Library was created in 1996 by famed country-singer Dolly Parton to foster a love of reading in all children, regardless of income. All participating children receive free books through the mail each month, from birth to age five.

13 United Way of Racine County • 2010 Annual Report

In 2009, United Way launched the Imagination Library initiative in western Racine County. It was a perfect fit for United Way’s early childhood outcome focused on the healthy development of children and school readiness. In 2010, the program doubled from 150 children to more than 300 and growing. A special thank you goes to founding sponsor, Runzheimer International, whose generous contribution provides age-appropriate books for our community’s children.


> 2010 CAMPAIGN The 2010 campaign was full of education, optimism and fun which resulted in a campaign that raised more than $5,000,000 for the first time in three years. Campaign volunteers, led by Chair John Erskine of Racine Federated and his cabinet, numbered in the hundreds. John Erskine’s genuine style of leadership was felt throughout the community in the very successful efforts to meet his challenge of “do all that you can, and then do one more thing!”

Campaign Chair John Erskine thanks the community at the 2010 Victory Celebration.

Workplace campaign coordinators and campaign committee members spent thousands of hours making sure the Live United message of Give, Advocate, Volunteer was delivered in colorful and genuine ways to their colleagues throughout Racine County. United Way Partner Provider program representatives shared moving stories of families whose lives have been dramatically improved and of children who received needed support because of the generous contributions to United Way.

SC Johnson & Son, Inc. employee and retiree giving exceeded their goal and provided the foundation for the success of the 2010 campaign. With over $1.6 million pledged to United Way of Racine County from employees and a match from the SC Johnson Fund, the total continues to represent the largest annual charitable gift by any organization in Racine County. The thousands of beneficiaries helped through United Way programs and the volunteers and staff of the agencies providing those programs owe a special thanks to SC Johnson employees, retirees, volunteers and the organization for their ongoing exemplary generosity of time, talent and treasure. No one has been more inspiring to his colleagues in raising awareness while having fun in the past two years than Matt Andis and his team. In this past year, they increased total giving by 35 percent. Following a 47 percent increase in 2009, Andis has become one of the top 12 contributors in Racine County. Great progress was made in telling the United Way story west of I-94 and nowhere better than in Burlington Area School District which achieved a huge increase thanks to a boost in understanding of the United Way investments in their communities. More than 10,000 individuals and 300 businesses contributed to United Way in 2010. Thank you to everyone who answered the call to “do one more thing.” Together, we can accomplish more than any one can alone. United, we can create a better community.

Matt Andis shows off his new mohawk after Andis exceeds their campaign goal.
