United Way of Greater Greensboro
In 2015, United Way of Greater Greensboro launched its very first Family Success Center (FSC) pilot, to provide solutions that reduce poverty in Greensboro neighborhoods. This new, innovative approach brings together partners across nonprofit, business and government sectors to provide integrated servicing that meets the needs of each member of a family. This collaborative model addresses the needs of low-income families by offering integrated services in one accessible location. Services focus on employment, education, financial capability, health and wellness and basic needs. UWGG’s long-term vision is to eradicate poverty in the greater Greensboro community by empowering people to become self-sufficient. A component of UWGG’s strategy to realize this vision is to establish FSCs in Greensboro zip codes experiencing the highest rates of poverty.
