United For Kids!

Hi, welcome to United for Kids! We would love to have you join our new group. We believe no one knows better what children need to thrive than local community members.

Why join United For Kids?

  • Get involved in something you care about.
  • Work with others to determine how our community can fill gaps that exist for the formation of children.
  • Help our local United Way perform as well as possible for children.

Areas that you can address:

  • Education -- how can we improve reading and math skills? Currently nearly half of children in Rice County are not reading at their grade level by third grade.
  • Health - How can we ensure the health of our children
  • Financial Stability - How children be more secure in our community, in food, housing and safety.

If you would like to consider becoming a charter member of this new affinity group, please contact me

With gratitude,

Elizabeth Child, Executive Director
