Resilient Lehigh Valley Community Outreach VISTA-UWGLV
United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley (UWGLV) is committed to improving lives and community conditions. We strive to create population level change in the areas of education, food access, healthy aging and ensure individuals who experience crises have the supports they need to rebound.
We focus on strengthening the networks of providers that deliver services to address these concerns and through staff of UWGLV who lead efforts across all four-issue areas, we address issues at the programmatic and systemic levels seeking to identify and deal with the root causes. We utilize the collective impact framework as a method for this problem solving of complex social issues and we embrace and promote the vision of diversity, equity and inclusion practices as an asset towards creating positive change.
