Everyone deserves the opportunity for education and access to knowledge. We make that possible by empowering parents support their children, improve the quality of their learning environment, and offer solutions to challenges outside the classroom. With the help of United Way’s Imagination Library (formerly Books from Birth), Stop the Summer Slide, and affiliate programs, students will obtain educational success from kindergarten to graduation.
