Imagine a community where every child has access to an education that will prepare him or her for a living-wage job. Imagine a safety net that not only catches people when they fall but provides them with a pathway out of poverty. Imagine a community where exceptional social service organizations, the private sector, and the public sector work together to do what none can accomplish alone: to measurably improve people's lives in Hancock County.
Through your generous support, United Way of Hancock County is enabling the community to achieve this vision. We are identifying and funding the social service programs that best meet our most pressing needs. We are coordinating solutions for lasting change.
In preparation for this task, we must gain a full understanding of the community. The Hancock County community has completed numerous assessments of how we can achieve even greater impact. We gathered this information from the following:
Community Conversations (complete in 2017, presented in 2018)
County Health Rankings (Released in 2018)
Map the Gap (2015 Results)
Hancock County Community Health Improvement Plan (2016-2019)
United Way led community conversations with 289 Hancock County citizens (completed in 2014)
United Way of Hancock County's Strategic Position (completed in 2014)
A Hancock County Health Assessment Project with more than 500 responses (completed in 2013)
