United Way’s Impact 100 is a diverse group of 100 community partners that we believe are addressing the most vital health and human service needs. Every Impact 100 organization maintains a high bar of organizational accountability and effectiveness in terms of finance, accountability, governance and impact in the community. Our rigorous selection process includes a variety of factors resulting in a diverse group of organizations—in terms of geographic regions served and human service domains, covering a robust cross-section of our community. This year’s impact 100 organizations cover the following domains: child welfare, healthcare access, food security, housing and financial stability, positive youth development and early childhood development.
