United Way of Siouxland reveals funding for 2018 difference-making programs


The United Way of Siouxland has announced funding for 30 separate programs and initiatives over the next year.

That funding totals nearly 1.8 million dollars with the goal of making a difference in the area.

The funding is divided into three categories: health, education and financial stability.

Education receives the most at over 850 thousand dollars.

Funding in this area includes programs at Boys and Girls Club, the Sanford Center, Girls Inc. and the Beyond the Bell Jump Start.

Health funding comes in at just over 520 thousand dollars.

The Council on Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence receives the most in this area.

Financial stability will receive around 420 thousand dollars.

The Center for Siouxland and Mary J. Treglia Community House are included in this area.

The United Way says that the funding decisions made by their volunteers are not taken lightly.

"Everything is gone through extensively to make sure that needs in Siouxland are being met and that the biggest impact possible is being made with our supporters's dollars." said Morgan Harpenau, United Way Community Impact Associate.

The United Way's next campaign begins in August and will last through the end of the year.
