Why does Middle School Engagement Matter?

Rebecca Holbrook, our education expert, dives deep into the data on how middle school students in our region are doing.


MetroCASH is an IRS-sponsored local Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program that promotes financial well-being, one of United Way's Steps to Success, by preparing free income tax returns.

We empower individuals and
drive systemic change to provide everyone with a clear path to success.
