Impact Monadnock Merges with Monadnock United Way

Merger will support growth of the region’s Early Childhood initiatives 

Keene, NH – Impact Monadnock, an early childhood development initiative in the Monadnock Region, merged with Monadnock United Way (MUW) on July 18, 2017. Founded three years ago, Impact Monadnock (IM) was created in response to research indicating that increasing support for early childhood development can have a powerful impact on the region’s long-term success in areas as broad as child well-being and the ability to graduate and earn a living in this region.

Monadnock United Way 2016-2021 Strategic Plan:
Harnessing the Power of Community To Change Lives
 
In 2012, the Monadnock United Way (MUW) and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation partnered with the NH Center for Public Policy Studies to conduct extensive research with a goal of uncovering gaps in the well-being of people living in the Monadnock Region. The goals of that study were to:
  • Identify major trends and community needs in our region
  • Identify evidence-based solutions to address those needs
  • Explore a systems approach to address the needs at the root cause
Of the many factors that influence a community’s well-being, three foundational areas were identified as high priority for our community to address. In these three areas, our region fell significantly behind other areas of our state. Those include:
  • Children—The rates of teenage pregnancy, and child abuse and neglect are higher in this region than all but three counties in the state.
  • Education—High school students in this region generally scored lower than the top 25% in the rest of the state.
  • Financial Stability—The region is losing high-paying jobs and our wages are the second lowest in the state.
These three factors tend to cycle together. On a positive note, when children, education, and financial stability needs are addressed as a whole, they positively affect other areas including substance abuse, hunger and homelessness.
