Are All the Children Well?

Monday - April 2, 2018

Of the nearly 1.3 million children living in our 13-county region, close to half a million live in communities with low or very low child well-being.  United Way of Greater Atlanta is focusing on ensuring every child has the opportunity to reach his or her full potential.  We are uniting with nonprofit, business, volunteer, donor, government and foundation partners to improve the living situations for all. We understand the needs of the community and encourage action because no one can do it alone.

United Way, along with dozens of partners, has developed a set of 14 measures that the community can use to assess how its children, the families that support them and the community that surrounds them, are doing. All 14 measures fall under the child, family or community measures.  These measures enable us to track our progress and determine what levers are the most effective in ensuring “all the children are well.” 

Putting our community’s children on the path to fulfilling their potential requires us to work together toward a single, shared agenda. We need a collective vision, unified measures of achievement, strategies for how to attain success and a way to evaluate progress.  To find out more about how your community is doing, visit United Way of Greater Atlanta’s website and click on “Start Here”.
