Community Conversations

United Way of Allen County is dedicated to creating lasting change in Allen County and have committed to a business model where we are not relying on our boardroom as the sole place to devise strategies that advance community solutions.

Our work as community leaders and collaborators depends on continued efforts to Turn Outward, being intentional about listening to you, the residents of Allen County. We have heard you describe your aspirations and what stood in your way. We carefully compiled your stories, reviewed the evidence-based research about the community, and are steadfast in investing in the elimination of barriers.

We heard you. We know there is more to learn and much more to do. Thank you for investing in this initiative.
