The United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities to advance the common good to help all residents thrive and live the best version of themselves. We all benefit when a child succeeds in school, when someone finds a job that sustains a family, or when more people get quality, affordable healthcare. United Way endeavors to drive measurable impact by focusing and accelerating our current agenda centered around economic mobility, education, and health initiatives while remaining responsive to community needs with flexibility to respond to critical needs and crises. As our community recovers from one of the deadliest pandemics in our country’s history, the United Way will play a pivotal role in helping residents from under-resourced communities and the ALICE population (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) move towards self-sufficiency.
Serving as a backbone for our community, United Way will work closely with nonprofit and other partner agencies to provide enhanced job training, improved housing opportunities, access to healthcare programs and wrap-around services for ALICE households on their journey to self-sufficiency. The Manager of Economic Mobility works closely with the Director of Economic Mobility to lead a team of case managers and coordinators and ensure accurate reporting of performance on agreed-upon benchmarks.
