It’s never too early to begin laying the groundwork for success.

The Need

Our children are the future of our community. We need to do all we can to set them up for success and that begins with success in school. Studies show that kids who are well prepared when they enter kindergarten are more likely to stay in school.
Those who finish high school are more likely to be employed.

The Solution

We partner with local nonprofits and companies/organizations who are equally committed to the success of our children and youth to cultivate positive, lasting change where it matters the most: where we live.

Access & Placement

We assist parents in selecting and accessing appropriate, quality and affordable early childcare that will prepare children to successfully transition to school ready to learn, with a focus on early childhood literacy.

Youth Training

We provide training for youths in citizenship, responsibility, character education and self-reliance preparing them to be responsible citizens and able to make healthy life choices.

At United Way of Warren County, we are committed to helping our children and youth achieve their full potential through partnerships and programs that provide opportunities and activities to develop desirable social, emotional, and intellectual tools to attain academic success.
