Recent media coverage illustrates United Way of Metropolitan Chicago’s role on different levels in leading and resourcing change in our region. Part of United Way’s unique value is that we do play the role of advocate, funder, partner, and innovator on both a neighborhood and regional level. These stories are good examples of that.
