Heart of Missouri United way targets the causes of poverty

Oct 18, 2012

Heart of Missouri United Way announced its new funding recipients Wednesday as part of its Community Impact model, which will shift focus from assisting those living in poverty to targeting causes of poverty.

Eight new agencies will receive funding next year, and some agencies will lose funding as Heart of Missouri United Way seeks to reduce need in poor communities, not just fill it.

The Heart of Missouri United Way voted last week to adopt a new strategy that will focus future funding on programs that address poverty and other issues with at-risk children.
