Connections:

The most consistent and powerful theme from our conversations with community members has been the sense of disconnection that people feel from one another and from the rest of the community. We know that communities are strongest when people are connected to one another. That people thrive when they feel supported by their neighbors. That cities feel like communities when everyone feels welcomed. And that it takes a village to raise a child. We know that connections matter. 
 
United Way sees a particular need in Olmsted County to bring people together around common goals. To learn from one another. To support one another. We are issuing this Request for Proposals to establish partnerships and offer support for programs that leverage peer or near-peer connections in order to produce improved outcomes in the areas of health, education, or financial stability.

    Independent Living:

    Some families face challenges as they work to maintain stable, healthy households. United Way sees a particular need in Olmsted County to provide supports for seniors, recent immigrants and refugees, and people with mental illness to live independently in the community. When individuals and families can live healthy, financially stable, and independent lives, our community is stronger.

    We are issuing this Request for Proposals to establish partnerships and offer support for programs that provide services and/or training in instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) to vulnerable populations. We particularly welcome proposals from programs that serve seniors, recent immigrants and/or refugees, or individuals with mental illness. Proposals from programs serving other populations that can benefit from support in IADLs will also be considered.
