Indicators of Community Strength
As one of the region’s largest funding organizations, United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg is a leader in providing critical information to community leaders and organizations. We have a dedicated research team that studies local data to identify problems in our communities, researches solutions and works with partner organizations to develop solutions that actually move the needle.
We provide comprehensive analysis to better understand the areas where change is needed most. And we hold our agency partners accountable to ensure that our resources are being used in smart and impactful ways.
Community indicators are vital components of any effort to understand how our communities are progressing in particular areas. By zeroing in our Steps to Success framework and the data behind each Step, we are better able to both empower individuals and address systemic problems to provide everyone with a clear path to success.
