Join us on the 3rd Saturday of every month for our Satur-Day of Caring! We unload, pack, and deliver fresh food and non-perishables to 350 homes across Mahoning County. This initiative got started in response to the pandemic, but the need remains. It is a great event for families to come out together and give back, for schools to participate, and for anyone who wants to help our community get through these unprecedented times.
Register your child for our Imagination Library! Children under the age of 5 living in Mahoning County qualify to take part in this amazing initiative. Once you register you little one, you will receive a high-quality FREE book sent directly to your home once a month till they turn 5 years old.
In 2009, the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley started Success By 6. It’s a pre-kindergarten readiness program geared toward children who need a boost before they officially start school. The students go through a four week summer program that prepares them for their academic careers but also focuses on their social/ emotional development. Success By 6 is offered in 19 school districts at 26 different sites across the Mahoning Valley. More than 5,000 students went through the program since 2009.
Where there is a need in the Valley… Women Lead! Women United! is dedicated to working on United Way’s Early Education programs, specifically Success After 6.
Success After 6 provides wrap-around services to help break down barriers many of the students and their families face on a daily basis. Our United Way works in partnership with the school to help the students achieve success. We help the students realize their potential and encourages them to excel in the classroom. We bring community partners to the table to best serve the children and their families.
