Impact Monadnock is the community-led impact initiative of Monadnock United Way dedicated to supporting the region’s young children and families.
Impact Monadnock was founded in 2015. It merged with Monadnock United Way (MUW) on July 18, 2017. Impact Monadnock 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.
With the strength of Impact Monadnock’s strategies and outreach, our mission is to prepare children age 0-5 for academic, career and life success. It is critical that young children are given the opportunity to learn at an early age. The importance of preschool in developing social, emotional, cognitive and speech skills is well-documented; those that have these learning opportunities are more likely to succeed in life, and become a vital part of their community’s success.
