INTEGRATED SERVICE DELIVERY:
FAMILY SUCCESS CENTER
In March 2015, United Way of Greater Greensboro launched its very first Family Success Center (FSC) 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 meets the needs of each member of a family.
The FSC, was established with lead partner, Guilford Child Development in zip code 27406 and is supported by over 30 community-based partners.
This collaborative model addresses the needs of low-income families by offering integrated services in one accessible location. Services focus on employment, education, financial capability, health and wellness and basic needs.
The FSC offers Guilford County’s only GED completion program that incorporates free high-quality onsite childcare. To-date, the FSC has helped over 150 families, representing 214 adults and 136 children.
UWGG’s long-term vision is to eradicate poverty in the greater Greensboro community by empowering people to become self-sufficient. A component of UWGG’s strategy to realize this vision is to establish FSCs in Greensboro zip codes experiencing the highest rates of poverty.
United Way of Greater Greensboro intends to launch additional Family Success Centers in Greensboro in the coming years.
