Community Schools Boosters

CommunitySchoolBoosters Logo H RGB v3Be a champion of students in our community by becoming a Community School Booster!

Through your support, and others like you who believe all children should have equal opportunity to receive a quality education, United Way’s community schools are leveling the playing field for low-income students.  

Community Schools strip away non-academic barriers to learning that low-income children face, from basic needs to trauma counseling to dental/vision health support and much more so they can focus and engage in the classroom…and succeed in life!

We are happy to share Hamot Health Foundation is offering a $25,000 dollar for dollar Challenge Match! Hamot Health Foundation was one of the earliest supporters of the community schools initiative and continues to remain a strong ally in the work. They have joined with United Way as a champion to breaking down barriers that low-income children face. 

Thank you to our Community School Boosters!
