Some community problems are beyond the scope of any one organization or service sector. To tackle those issues, we’ve adopted a unique problem solving approach called collective impact. United Way brings together partners from multiple sectors, such as businesses, nonprofits, government organizations, community leaders and more. United Way serves as the backbone organization to support the work of the partnership by coordinating a shared measurement system, mutually reinforcing activities and ongoing communication.
