In March 2015, United Way of Greater Greensboro launched its very first Family Success Center 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 meet the unique needs of each family member. United Way plans to open multiple Family Success Centers in the future.
