Community Conversations

In order to understand and better serve the needs of our community, United Way wants to hear from you. We want to hear your thoughts on where the community is and where we should be heading. We want to learn from your experiences, understand your concerns, and offer you the opportunity to share your aspirations and desire for change.

What are Community Conversations?

The conversations consist of 90-minute, “kitchen-table” style discussions where groups of no more than 12 participants share their opinions about the community. The groups are made up of community members from various ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, and experiences.

What will United Way do with the feedback?
  • Through this process, United Way will receive the information to help further engage the community, find new partners, develop strategies, and mobilize resources.
  • The information will also help to shape United Way’s strategic plan and the future direction of the organization.
  • United Way will share the findings with the Racine community each year through the Community Conversation Report and a Report-out Meeting.  

By understanding your challenges and aspirations, United Way can develop long-lasting solutions. You can be part of this process of creating change and lasting impact. There are several dates scheduled for future Community Conversations and conversations can also be held on-site by request. For more information, please contact Julie Anderson at 262-456-6469.
