United Pride is proud to announce United Way of Metropolitan Chicago’s second annual appearance in the Chicago Gay Pride Parade. After a year’s worth of hard work improving our organization’s culture, practice and relationships, we’re ready to celebrate!
Pride is a time of year to stand together and commemorate another year of growth and acceptance. It is also a time for us to share ourselves with Chicago’s LGBTA community. United Way of Metropolitan Chicago is proud to be a presence in the community by supporting the programs that provide services to those with the greatest need. Our community impact work goes far beyond funding. We’re able to implement resources through volunteerism, advocacy, community leadership, capacity building and so much more.
As we look forward, the future holds exciting things for United Way of Metropolitan Chicago. We will narrow our resources into communities that are comprised of people living at or below 200% of the federal poverty level and continue our focus on the building blocks of stability; education, income and health. This will create a ripple effect of change throughout Chicago and its surrounding communities, creating long term solutions to achieve our goal of LIVING UNITED.
So be safe during Pride and when you see those United Way marchers on Sunday give ‘em a shout out because they’re working to ensure that the LGBTA community LIVES UNITED.
