United Way of the Piedmont selected as “Community Service” finalist for 2021 InnoVision Award
United Way of the Piedmont is proud to be selected as a finalist for its Community Resource Coordinator program for the 2021 InnoVision Award. The award honors individuals and organizations for impactful innovations under development in South Carolina.
United Way’s CRC program is the signature economic mobility intervention for Spartanburg, Cherokee and Union counties. Community Resource Coordinators provide intensive case management to clients, helping families move from crisis to self-sufficiency. As part of United Way’s Bold Goals for 2030, the organization plans to expand the program to increase the impact of financially stability.
President & CEO of United Way of the Piedmont, Paige Stephenson, says “We are truly thankful to be nominated as a finalist for the InnoVision award. Our Community Resource Coordinators work hard to help those in our community, so getting that recognition helps to let others know that we’re here for them at United Way.”
United Way of the Piedmont was honored to receive the InnoVision COVID-19 Community Service Award last year for its United for All COVID-19 Relief Fund. United Way’s Community Resource Coordinators and United for All Fund helped families through pandemic-related challenges, such as employment loss and reduced work hours. With the expansion of the CRC program, we hope to continue making an impact in our community.
InnoVision will host a “Meet the Finalists” series September 28th at 4:00pm. Join the virtual event for a conversation with the finalists to learn more about South Carolina’s innovation economy. The online event is open to the public and free to anyone who registers in advance.
