General information

At United Way of Lake County, we help people. There is a face behind every program we serve. A mother grateful for formula to soothe her baby's hunger. A teen relieved to find help outside the dark tunnel of addiction. A senior comforted knowing access to warm meals and needed medication is available. A woman and her two children thankful for a safe haven from domestic abuse. A mother's burden lifted knowing her children will not go to sleep hungry. A child's confidence boosted knowing he or she can now read to the level of his classmates and will not be left behind. These are just some of the people your support impacts. We offer our supporters accountability, efficiency and transparency and are proud to merit a Gold Star rating from Guidestar, the world's largest source of information on non-profit organizations. A diverse pool of volunteers from across the community lead our community investment process. From strategic plan development to deciding where to allocate funds, volunteers make all of the key decisions. And United Way of Lake County, we believe in tackling the source, not just the symptoms of our communities' core challenges. We do this by focusing on 3 key areas: Health, Education, and Financial Stability. It's our belief that these are the building blocks for a quality life and a stronger community. A quality education is essential to getting a good job with health benefits. An income that can cover today's needs and save for tomorrow solidifies a family's foundation. Good health helps children succeed at school and adults succeed at work. Remove any one building block and the other two topple. Build them all up, and we have a strong foundation for collective success. Nestled amount the three building blocks is Basic Needs. Shelter. Food. Clothing. A warm bed. A shoulder to lean on. Donations help us support our most vulnerable neighbors in times of crisis. Simply put, United Way of Lake County is the best way to help the most people. Will you join us?

Emerging Leaders of United Way of Lake County grant funding cycle is NOW OPEN and accepting requests from non-profits for local programs that uplift and benefit the youth of Lake County. You can find more details and the grant application here:
Community Event hosted by Serlo Media World premiere of documentary “A Tale of Two Mothers” by local filmmaker, Stephon J. Davis Atlas Theater located at 22624 Lakeshore Blvd. from 7pm to 9pm. September 29, 2018 September is National Suicide Prevention Month; some of the proceeds will be donated to the two mother’s foundations – Dancing for Life and Caleb’s Anti- Bullying Cause. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.atlascinemas.net/shore.aspx or at the box office 22624 Lakeshore Blvd. Euclid, Oh 44123. Ticket cost $10.00. A new documentary from local filmmaker Stephon J. Davis “A Tale of Two Mothers” will have a premier showing at Atlas Theaters on Lakeshore Boulevard September 29, 2018 at 7pm. Tickets can purchased at http://www.atlascinemas.net/shore.aspx or at the box office 22624 Lakeshore Blvd. Euclid, Ohio 44123. In the documentary two mothers with different backgrounds experience the same grief; losing a child to teen suicide. “Although the mother’s backgrounds seemed different at first glance what really drew me to each of the mothers was how similar their stories were to each other”, Stephon said. The goal that the filmmaker hopes to accomplish is “I want to be able to give survivors a small measure of comfort and to those who are struggling internally to give them hope and inspiration”. Stephon uses this quote from Anna Jones, founder of Up the Steps, who appears in film “you CAN live to see another day”. I would like for anyone who is struggling, a survivor, mental health professionals, educators, parents, students and community leaders to come see the film “A Tale of Two Mothers”. Q & A with cast and Director will follow the movie. Anyone interested in being a sponsor for future showings, wanting resource material that you or your organization provides to clients at this event or future events, or would like to learn more about the event project or to purchase a film screening kit can contact me at; Stephon J. Davis/Serlo Media/Director [email protected]
