United Way of Greater Cleveland Grade Level Reading

Greater Cleveland’s children need your help.

The end to poverty starts with a good education.

At United Way of Greater Cleveland, we don’t just see people for who they are; we see them for who they can become. We see the potential of struggling students – from preschool to high school. We help them learn to read, and read to learn. We help them earn their diploma, go to college, and get a great job. With your assistance, we have helped hundreds of at-risk students break the cycle of poverty and find the road to success.
