United Way of Greater Greensboro has received a $250,000 grant from the Lincoln Financial Foundation in support of collaborative solutions addressing poverty, including educational opportunities for children and families at United Way’s Family Success Center.
The Family Success Center is a community collaboration to empower families to achieve their goals through job skills training and education. The center offers onsite integrated services tailored to meet the needs of each family member.
“We are more than excited about the future of greater Greensboro. Partners like Lincoln Financial Foundation make it possible to advance our work addressing the root causes of generational poverty,” says Michelle Gethers-Clark, President and CEO United Way of Greater Greensboro.
Lincoln Financial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Lincoln Financial Group, believes in empowering people to live greater lives, which advances culture and empowers greater positive change. Its grant is part of Lincoln Financial’s annual $10 million investment in its local communities’ youth education, economic and workforce development, human well-being and arts programs.
