About the Program
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area (UWGDA) has been investing donor dollars in health and human service agencies since its inception in 1913. In 2011 UWGDA along with United Ways across the nation, began shifting their funding model to reflect a more direct investment in programs and services that worked to eliminate barriers and help individuals and families remove barriers to positive outcomes in education, income, and health. This initial shift led to yet one more adaptation. When the program evaluations and the community needs assessment demonstrated that outcomes were not improving, United Way made the move to investing in Collective Impact projects. Collective impact is an approach, which brings organizations together for a common agenda to solve large complex problems. Collective impact is built upon five interconnected components that can produce strong alignment and lead to large-scale results. This presentation will provide information about those five components and the various Collective Impact projects that are being implemented in Montgomery County.
