United Way

Community Action Plan
United Way is addressing specific issues in the area of Health that help create long-term community change. Currently, United Way is a key partner in several collaborative health partnerships, including an initiative focused on improving access to youth mental health services.

Funded Programs
We fund 32 programs that are helping families and individuals improve their health. These programs address family support, health, substance abuse, prevention of abuse, building a healthy community and parenting.

Individuals can call 2-1-1 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to get connected to services in the community, such as, finding food, rent or utility assistance. Last year, representatives responded to almost 12,000 calls.

Healthiest State Initiative - Blue Zones Project
One of the centerpieces of the Healthiest State Initiative is the Blue Zones Project. Blue Zones are geographically defined areas around the world where people reach age 100 at rates 10 times greater than in the United States. We'd like to transform the Quad Cities into Blue Zones Communities, where people "Live Longer, Better."

Of the 900 communities in Iowa, ten will be chosen to receive direct support from the Blue Zones Project Team. Davenport is one of 11 finalists. If the resources are won, we will use them to benefit the entire Quad Cities.

Show your support by signing up here if you live or work in Davenport. Want to help even more? Ask your friends to pledge too and together we'll make Iowa the healthiest state in the nation.

Here are some fliers and an email blast that you can use to gain support.
