With the help of the DeWitt County community, United Way of Decatur & Mid-Illinois (UWDMI) will increase investment in multiple agency programs in DeWitt County that are changing lives and moving individuals towards self-sufficiency and independent living.
Eight different programs will receive the full amount of investment they requested from the United Way for one year. James Keith is the Community Impact Director at UWDMI as he says the contributions made are all due to generosity from those in the community.
Programs such as Dove Inc.'s Domestic Violence Program, American Red Cross’s Disaster Services Program, Sarah Bush Lincoln’s Peace Meal Senior Nutrition Program, Clinton Community YMCA’s Grow the Impact Program, DeWitt County Human Resource Center’s Developmental Training Program, Boy Scouts of America – W.D. Boyce Council’s Comprehensive Youth Development Program, DeWitt County Friendship Center’s Senior Programming, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central IL’s Mentor Program have all received full funding for one year.
Keith says the overall impact these donations make will not be forgotten.
DeWitt County agencies will need to apply for funding in the spring of 2019 in order for their programs to be considered for investment again.
