United Way of the Midlands is a non-profit organization that helps provide opportunities to members of area communities. This organization believes that all people deserve a quality education, a stable job, good health and steady income to support their family through retirement.
Through various community programs, United Way of the Midlands supplies education to children and youth, promotes financial stability programs and independence, and improves people’s health.
In 2008, the national United Way organization initiated a 10-year program to cut the number of high school dropouts in half, get 1.9 million working families on the road to economic independence, and increase health among youth and young adults and help them avoid risky behaviors.
With donations such as the one made by Dr. Joel Schlessinger and his family, these goals can be succeeded. Dr. Joel Schlessinger and his family received a very nice hand-written note in response to their donation.
“Donations such as yours make a positive change in the Omaha area and United Way thanks you for your generosity. Your gift ensures a stronger community for future generations,” said Deb Steele, a member of the United Way of the Midlands.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger and his family have donated to many other organizations that help those less fortunate pursue education, stable jobs and steady employment. One such organization is the OneWorld Community Health Center, a non-profit organization that provides quality health care to people who may fall through the cracks due to economic status.
