For 100 years, United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR) has brought people together to build stronger, healthier and more compassionate communities. As we celebrate this milestone, we have found one place in each community where we can reach the most families in need: School is Square One for ending family poverty. Through our Square One approach, we are working with local schools, nonprofits, companies, volunteers and more to end poverty in the capital region. We are helping kids excel in school because a quality education helps children develop the social, emotional, and cognitive skills that lay the foundation for a more fulfilling and stable life. We are investing in families because investment programs focused on families help reduce debt, build savings, and promote sustainable financial stability. We are strengthening schools because applying systemic solutions to address individual student needs provides whole child support, strengthens families, and improves overall community health. UWCCR helps kids excel in school through 1. KinderCamp – a school readiness program for incoming kindergarten students; and 2. STARS – tutoring program to help students reach grade level reading. UWCCR invests in families through 1. Digital Equity Program – Provides devices and access to internet households and community; 2. Guaranteed Income Program – Provides unrestricted funds monthly to 80 families in Sacramento; and 3. Free Tax Prep Program – Provides free tax preparation services to those who qualify saving families over $200 in service fees. UWCCR strengthens schools by acting as a convener and catalyst for community school support.
