community-strengthening: Building Capacity To Advance The Common Good
We have a shared responsibility to promote the common good by ensuring the state has a well-managed and resourced network of community services that protect and invest in our state’s most vital resource: our people.
To do this, United Way will:
- Advocate for a state budget that adequately funds strategic investments in Illinois’ health and human services
- Promote fair, efficient and transparent contracting practices between service providers and government funders
- Support efforts to reduce unnecessary state administrative burdens on human service providers and their programs
- Enhance community resources that ensure a seamless infrastructure of health and human service support those in need
