The United Way of Central Florida (UWCF) has taken a number of steps to enhance the quality of life in Central Florida. These initiatives include the Early Childhood Education Initiative, the Academic Achievement Initiative, the Community Partnership School Initiative, and the Financial Stability Initiative. The Early Childhood Education Initiative is designed to ensure that children are ready to read when they enter school. The Academic Achievement Initiative is aimed at increasing high school graduation rates.
The Community Partnership School Initiative focuses on providing resources and support to schools in the area. Finally, the Financial Stability Initiative helps families achieve and maintain financial stability. These initiatives were developed by a team of leaders from Circle, Circle Allies, and other experts in the field. The pilot project has been highly successful at the Circles headquarters in West Orange, with plans being developed to expand these initiatives throughout Central Florida.
