In communities across the Ozarks, the lives of thousands of children, adults, and families are made better thanks to the programs, services and initiatives supported by United Way of the Ozarks. Your contribution to United Way gives people help today, and hope for a better life tomorrow. United Way programs help people learn to read, feed the hungry, give shelter to the homeless, protect families and children from violence, restore hope after a disaster or illness, and renew faith for a brighter tomorrow. Its tactics for measurable success are:

• Providing assistance for basic needs such as housing, food, heat, utilities, shelter and support for victims of crime and child abuse, and access to mental health services.
• Coordinated case management approach with universal intake and a common database.
• Measure common outcomes among partner agencies.
• Prepare every child for kindergarten by providing access to quality childcare and 3 X 3 screenings.
• Increase grade level reading proficiency, with a focus on 3rd grade, through the use of tutors and mentors.
