REPORT


1919

THEN:

TO PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE OF THE COMMUNITY OF

YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO, AND VICINITY, AND FOR SUCH PURPOSE TO

RECEIVE, USE AND DISBURSE MONEY AND OTHER PROPERTY

EITHER DIRECTLY OR THROUGH OTHERS.

OUR MISSION

NOW:

2019

The United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley will create

positive change by collaborating with partners to educate and

empower children and families in the Mahoning Valley.


DEAR FRIENDS:

Thanks to all of you, our Centennial Celebration exceeded all our expectations! Our fundraising

efforts raised more than $3.4 million, which is the most money we have raised in a single year in

our 100 year history. We did it in partnership with you, our donors, and volunteers spreading the

word about the work that is being done by your United Way.

Whether it is the collaboration of so many partners making an impact in the 14 elementary schools

where we lead Success After 6, or work being done by our funded partners, we are seeing real,

positive change. Our theme of ‘Change doesn’t happen alone’ is so true. Our hundreds of

volunteers are on the frontline with us and spreading the word of the families and children who

face barriers getting the support they need to be successful.

While we have been blessed to raise more money, we have kept our expenses in check, and we are

proud that for a fourth straight year, Charity Navigator has rated our United Way a 4-star charity -

their highest award. They also ranked us among the top non-profits in Ohio for accountability and

transparency. It is very important to us that we continue to put as many dollars as possible back

into the work.

We encourage all of you to consider volunteering. We have many opportunities that will fit your

schedule. So many of you have shared your experiences with us, whether it be Report Card

Mentoring, Young Women’s Mentorship, or the Project More Reading Program. The one common

theme is that our volunteers get such a rewarding experience from donating their time.

We do have challenges ahead, but the Mahoning Valley is so very

generous. We look forward to what the next 100 years will bring

for United Way!

Please take the time and look through our Annual Report and learn

more about where your dollars are making the greatest impact on

our community.

Sincerely,

Bob Hannon

Imagination

Library

“I was introduced to ‘Dolly

Parton’s Imagination Library’

through my work with the

United Way of Youngstown and

the Mahoning Valley. When I

got pregnant with my son Axl in

2014, I knew signing him up

would be a top priority. I called

during my first week home

from the hospital in February

2015. This year, he received his final book after five years of

participating in this amazing program through three different

sponsors. The look of joy on his face every month when a book

with HIS name on it would arrive in the mail was priceless.

Imagination Library started in

2014, since then we have

served nearly 10,000 children

through the program.

Currently, 5,705 children

who live in Mahoning County

and are under the age of 5

receive free books once a

month. In addition, 4,110

children graduated from the

program once they turned 5.

In 2020, we will partner with

the Ohio Imagination Library

and Governor Mike DeWine to

help reach more children in

the state of Ohio.

Every book is geared toward the child’s current age — from birth to kindergarten. He developed a love of language

and reading from an early age thanks to his expanding home library at no cost to us. I know this will be a fond

childhood memory but also last a lifetime as he continues to enjoy the books for years to come. Raising children

is expensive and many times, even if the necessities are taken care of, educational tools are not affordable. To

offer this program free to families sets children up for success as they enter school. We’re so grateful for DPIL

and will continue to sing its praises. Thank you United Way for sponsoring this program in the Mahoning Valley

and investing in children’s futures!” Erika Thomas, Imagination Library Parent


“My daughter, Samantha, couldn't wait

to go to the Success By 6 program the

summer before kindergarten. The

youngest of my four children, she was

the only one who participated in what

she called "practice school". The

program definitely prepared her for

what school would be like and eased

any anxieties she had before the first

day. From taking the bus, to meeting

some of her classmates, to getting an

understanding of what school would

be like, the program answered many

of her questions and was fun, too! I felt that

participating in the program gave her confidence and

a foundation to begin kindergarten prepared to learn.”

Amy Garland, Success By 6 Parent, Boardman Schools

Success By 6

Success By 6 celebrated its 10th Anniversary

this year. In 2009, the pre-kindergarten

readiness program started in two school

districts— Campbell and South Range. Since

then it’s grown to 19 school districts at 25

school sites. This year 633 children finished

the program and experienced a 12 point

average increase in their pre and post literacy

test. 100% of the parents surveyed are

satisfied with the program and believe their

child is better prepared for school.

Success After 6

Success After 6 provides wraparound services to students and their families in 6 school districts.

The largest component of the initiative is the afterschool program that served 650 students in

the 2018-2019 school year. Those children experienced an average 4.5% higher attendance rate

than those not in SA6 at 93% and a 35% lower discipline rate. They also received extra support

in literacy and math. The students receive an hour of focused academic support from certified

classroom teachers. Then they experience a variety of enrichment activities ranging from the

arts to STEM education. We are serving 700 students for the 2019-2020 school year by adding

Struthers Elementary.

Jeremiah was part of the first kindergarten

class of Success After 6 at Youngstown

Community School when our United Way

launched the initiative during the

2015-2016 school year. He is now in the

fourth grade and in his fifth year of SA6

afterschool. Jeremiah is an honor roll

student who is succeeding in and out of

class.

“I’ve been in Success for 5 years and in 5 years

my most favorite thing to do is get my grades

up and make more friends.”

Young Women’s Mentorship

“Volunteering for Young Women's

Mentorship Program is a small thing

that makes a huge difference in these

girls’ lives. Seeing the huge smile on

my Mentee’s face every week when she

sees me – means the world to me. She

willingly opens up about school, home,

and friends to me and we have

developed a sweet bond. She makes

me laugh and I make her turn her

homework in! It’s a wonderful

experience.”

Since 2014, the Young

Women’s Mentorship

program has engaged

280 young women in the

Mahoning Valley. During

the 2018-2019 school

year, 42 mentees were

paired with 42 mentors.

The students connected

with these strong female

role models. They

worked on their

academics and leadership

skills as well as tackled

the difficult issues that

face adolescent girls.

97% of the students at

Taft and Boardman

improved their grades,

89% improved their

attendance, and 80%

improved their behavior.

For the 2019-2020 school

year, 39 mentors and 43

mentees are taking part

in the program.


Promising Men Mentorship

Promising Men Mentorship is

a collaboration between

United Way’s Success After 6

and the Kool Boiz

Foundation. Once a week,

African-American and

Hispanic men from the local

community meet with male

students in the 5th through

8th grade. The program

started at Youngstown

Community School, and for

the 2019-2020 school year

grew to include

Youngstown’s Taft

Elementary School.

10 mentors work with 24

boys at both schools.

During the 2018-2019 school

year, 60% of the mentees

improved either their grades,

attendance or both. They all

said they now plan to attend

college, can better manage

their actions and emotions,

and have a trusted adult they

can turn to.

“It's very important for me to

be able to give back to the

community that invested so

much in me. As a kid my

mentors were my coaches,

they used instruction for

athletics as metaphors of

life. I hope to have as much

of an impact on them as my

coaches had on me. If you

ask anyone about their

success, you're likely to hear

about someone who took the

time to pour into them,

whether it be knowledge,

wisdom or self confidence.

The relationships formed

within this program will alter

these young men lives for the

better.”

Kenny Boone, Mentor

One of the main goals of the

program is to expose the

students to new experiences and

real life situations. In 2019, they

traveled to Washington D.C.

where they visited the National

Museum of African American

History and Culture. They also

visited Anderson Dubose to learn

about the largest

minority-owned business in

Ohio.

VITA:

VITA: Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program is a collaboration with the Mahoning County

Financial Stability Partnership. In 2019, 12 Sites and 62 Volunteers helped complete 2,059 tax

returns. This allowed families to keep their entire tax returns and avoid unnecessary and

predatory fees ultimately investing $1,974,688 back in the local community.

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown also visited our office in 2019 promoting the importance of the

Earned Income Tax Credit. The EITC is the federal government’s largest benefit for workers. It

gives a much needed boost to the working individual and family. For example, our VITA services

allowed our clients to receive a total $521,700 from the EITC as well as a total of $178,333

from the Child Tax Credit.

211 — Help Network of Northeast Ohio

Help Network of Northeast Ohio runs Mahoning County’s 211 call line and online database. In

2019, it received 10,448 Calls. Throughout their entire territory, the trained staff received a total

of 153,764 calls from individuals looking for help, crisis intervention, or referral calls.


Because change does not

Our Volunteers

happen alone...

“You have written your name on my heart.” Chris, Project More Volunteer

Volunteers are truly the backbone of our United Way. In 2019, we engaged more than 1,800

volunteers through our various programs and events. A majority of those individuals—1,200—

rolled up their sleeves and got to work for our 21st Annual Day of Caring. They revitalized the

South Side of Youngstown by cleaning up 64 vacant properties, demolishing 16 blighted homes,

7 unsafe garages, restoring 2,380 feet of sidewalks, revitalizing 1 playground, and installing

127 smoke alarms and 125 safety lights. The rest of our volunteers spent countless hours in

the Success After 6 schools. 20 Project More volunteers work one on one with students at

Girard Prospect Elementary helping them increase their reading levels. 75 Report Card Mentors

work with students after their quarterly grading periods helping them set goals to improve their

grades, behavior, and attendance. 200 volunteers helped us with the vision screening program

in Youngstown and Liberty. 25 volunteers set up and distributed food at the food pantries in our

SA6 schools. And even more spent time with the students in the after school program.


Women United!

Women United brings together women from all walks of life to

celebrate and encourage one another. In 2019, Women United

hosted 4 Women’s Wednesday Night Outs, which highlighted

businesses owned or run by women. We welcomed the moms

and important women of our Success After 6 students at our

4th Annual Mother’s United event at the B&O Station. Our

Women United members volunteered at the YWCA, Habitat for

Humanity, and various Success After 6 programs throughout

the year. Women United members and Women Leadership

donors also raised $300,000 for our United Way.

"Seeing first hand the impact the programs supported by the United Way Of

Mahoning Valley and Women United has on the children and families of our

community, it makes me proud to be involved with driving positive change in my

home town. Being a women in business, and getting to work with and support other

women is both uplifting and motivating.” Stacy Howlett, Women United

“I've been able to see first hand how we can come together as a group of women, from

all parts of our Valley, for one cause and make a difference in the lives of each of these

kids. I'm so impressed with the Success After 6 program, the United Way staff and

their perseverance to support our efforts. However, the most impressive time for me is

seeing the smiles on these kids when we volunteer and spend time encouraging them,

helping them with schoolwork, or sponsoring events where they can just be kids."

Thank you to our Centennial Presenting

have stood by United Way’s side for decades.

We appreciate them not only joining us, but

leading the way as we turned 100!

“Historically Youngstown is a town that cares about our neighbors and our

community. It’s a town that punches above its weight regularly by doing

such things as taking care of our neighbors and community when they’re

in need. It’s an honor to be a part of the process that celebrates 100 years

of that and it’s equally exciting to know what’s going on right now with United

Way’s programs and the future that the last 100 years built for us.”

“Getting involved with the United Way is important because your friends, your neighbors

need the help. That’s the bottom line. People you don’t even know could use our

services. We’re here for them. The more people we can get engaged the better off we

will be. I think it is going to be key that we continue to do what we do. We listen to our

community and as the needs change, United Way will change along with that. We have

great leadership that will recognize those changes and I look forward to another 100

years of success like we have in the past.”

Ted Schmidt, PNC Regional President


“Things have changed through the years, but more recently on the

children’s side. Giving them hope. Giving them a chance to get the

education they need and the love they need. But over 100 years, it’s

generations of hope, it’s generations of impact that gives someone a

back stop when they need it.”

Ed Muransky, The Muransky Companies

“I hope we continue on the path that we’re on—to serve as many people

as possible, especially the youth who need it. That ensures a better

future for everyone in the Valley. I love seeing the path that

we’re on.”

Chris Muransky, The Muransky Companies

“I love that United Way goes into the community and works with

other partners—OH WOW!, Ballet Western Reserve, Boys and Girls

Club, and moves the whole community forward. I hope to see

more of that in the future. I think United Way is on the right

track—making a difference in the lives of kids.”

Alexa Sweeney Blackann, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC

“It’s been generational, in our case Alexa represents our 4th generation of our

family involved in the United Way. It’s been a generational impact. In my case

it was through mentors. People that directed me to help for the cause and I’ve

believed in it ever since. You see the immediate impact.” -

Doug Sweeney, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC

Many of them stepped up and became

a Success After 6 Champion by

donating that evening to help us

purchase a van to transport our

students to field trips and

experiences that take place outside of

the school. They made this possible,

and during the first half of the

2019-2020 school year its already

taken MORE than 40 trips with many

Building Our Future

United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley moved to 255 Watt Street in 1983. We have

called it home ever since, but recent growth spurred a complete renovation and expansion of the

building. In September, we moved out temporarily as builders and contractors gutted the entire

building and added 2,500 square feet creating a brand new conference room and basement

storage area. We added a new volunteer space, a new office configuration, and new individual

workspaces in the building at 255 Watt Street. We want to thank all the donors, foundations,

builders, and contractors who made this possible.

UNITED WAY of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley has fought to make change through

Generations of Impact. Since 1919, our organization has been fortunate to be surrounded by generations

of amazing donors and volunteers. They helped us thrive through an entire century of ups and downs, wins

and losses, tough times, and great times. As we celebrated our 100th Anniversary, we honored past

volunteers but saw a new generation rise to the occasion and help us look to our next 100 years. Thanks

to the dedication of Youngstown City School’s Chief Academic Office, Christine Sawicki, she helped the

district increase their giving by an incredible 940% increase over the previous year! Local 396 Plumbers

and Pipefitters continue to give back through the AFL-CIO Community services, donating hundreds of hours

of volunteer time. When our Success After 6 afterschool program started at Youngstown Community

School in 2015, Gina Santore has volunteered her time to help with the children. She even got her Casals

de Spa co-worker Heather Yanek involved. They now read to students EVERY Wednesday! Our Rising Star

award goes to Ava Shapiro. She is a senior at Canfield High School, and spends most of her Fridays

volunteering at Youngstown Community School whether it’s the food pantry or Report Card Mentoring, you

can find her with the students. And finally, when we started planning our 2019 Centennial Celebrations, our

board member and long time volunteer Chris Sammartino took his involvement to the next level. He is the

reason we raised more than $300 thousand at our Centennial Champions event. Thank you to these

individuals and organizations who stepped up in a major way in 2019.

IMPACT LEADERSHIP AWARD

Home Savings Bank

UNITED WAY of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley knows to live better we must live united. Every year we

have organizations that give of their time and talent, but some go above and beyond. When we started Project

More, a literacy tutoring program, at Girard Prospect Elementary, we needed a reliable group of volunteers. We

found them at the Girard United Methodist Church. This is the 3rd year they are selflessly giving their time every

day to help the children in Girard read better. Similarly, the YSU Department of Nursing stepped in and played a

major role in our Vision Screening program. For the past three years, they’ve sent hundreds of students to help us

as we screened 2,500 students. Whenever we put a call out for volunteers, one of the first organizations to respond

in a big way is Home Savings Bank. From Young Women’s Mentorship to vision screenings to Report Card

Mentoring to Day of Caring you can find their employees giving their time to help our students and families. Finally,

Coaches Burger Bar owned by the Howletts, whenever we need help they are there. Whether its with a box truck to

deliver Christmas gifts or fundraisers that help us support our programs, Stacy, Patrick, and their employees are

ready to give back to their community.


UNITED WAY of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley

founded The Leadership Club in 1983. The investment made at

the Leadership Level starts at $1,000, and since the inception

these generous donors have helped us achieve our goal each

year. In 2019, our leadership club grew to 250 members and

raised $621,900 of this year’s campaign.
