Program areas at United Way of New York City

Education:united Way of New York cityin partnership with the New York City office of community schools (ocs) and the New York City department of education (nycdoe)is improving the outcomes for students across our City who attend community schools, by improving attendance and decreasing dropout rates. United Way supports 45 community schools (elementary, middle, and high) to transform them into neighborhood hubs where health care, food pantries, after-school programs, family engagement, and parent education classes are available directly on school campuses, all in an effort to help youth reach the goal on on-time graduation, and preparing them for college or career. United Way of New York City's readnyc initiative is a collective impact approach that helps improve grade-level reading by third grade for children living in some of our most-challenged communities, while at the same time empowering their parents and caregivers to build more stable homes. Bringing together, students, parents, teachers, schools, and communities, while offering classroom resources, culturally relevant curriculum, critical technology accessibility, training for teachers and principals, and family supports for basic and emergency needs, United Way of New York City is coordinating every obstacle that factors into a child's ability to learn, and as a result is improving literacy outcomes for children and setting them on the path for future success. Parent empowerment a critical corollary to our parent engagement lever readnyc aims to help parents provide a stable and supportive learning environment at home. As part of our mott haven parent collective workshops, we have a dual-focus on literacy and financial empowerment; workshops shift from exchanging knowledge on literacy and resources for our children, to sharing resources that families can leverage for themselves and their community. The women's center for education and career advancement (wceca) presents to our parents on self-sufficiency, i.e. Estimating a budget needed to sustain a family to demonstrate the true costs of living in nyc. We also invite lift-ny, as one of the core readnyc partners, to present to parents on the many services they can offer families, such as financial coaching. Additionally, we hold our annual readnyc tax days in conjunction with ariva. Ariva provides financial counseling at the tax days and two additional financial empowerment workshops for our families.

Covid-19 community fundestablished in march 2020, this fund was created by United Way of New York City in direct response to the coronavirus pandemic that drastically affected the people of New York City. The fund would distribute resources and financial assistance to community based organizations and nonprofit partners that work in underserved neighborhoods across the City to provide short term immediate relief, and work toward creating long term recovery efforts. The fund would invest in programs focusing on the issues of advocacy and policy change, benefits access, eviction, and crisis support, education support, food and hunger relief, and organizational support.
Healthy food access:united Way of New York City came together with the New York City mayor's office of food policy, the helmsley charitable trust, City harvest, New York City human resources administration, and the New York state department of health-hunger prevention and nutrition assistance program (hpnap) to form the New York City food assistance collaborative (fac). The fac was created to address hunger, increase food provider capacity, share information and improve client experience. Members of the fac are unified in their mission to direct emergency food resources effectively and efficiently to New York City's most-vulnerable neighborhoods. Through capacity building and food pantry support, the fac was able to assist local pantries distribute another 15 million pounds of food annually.
