ANNUAL REpORT - United Way of Long Island
Annual Report to the Community
annual report
Message from board chair and
president & CEO
As we witness the recent
natural disasters occurring
around the world, we are
reminded of how we, as
individuals, can address
the needs of people in
such circumstances. It also
brings to mind what we are
doing at United Way of Long
Island in support of our
neighbors in need. United
Way fosters the link that we
all share and gives each of
us an opportunity to make a
difference. Last year, your
support enabled United
Way to distribute more than
$15.3 million in support of
our 113 agency partners
and our community impact
initiatives that care for the
most vulnerable among us.
A Year in Review for United Way of Long Island Donors and Community Partners
Each year, nearly 10,000 Long Island students do not
graduate from high school. Many of Long Island’s
children and youth face challenges such as being from
low-income families, living in foster care or facing
homelessness—all of which can contribute to a lack
of family stability and an unsuccessful educational
United Way works diligently to support the building
blocks of better lives and stronger communities: a
quality education that leads to a stable job; enough
income to support a family through retirement; and
good health. Locally, this means:
More than 140 Westbury middle-school students
participated in essential academic tutoring
and skills enrichment activities to help them
succeed in school through our Community
Schools Project.
Over 300 displaced Long Island workers received
“green-building” training through United Way’s
state-of-the-art E3 Career Training Center. This
will allow them to increase their income potential
and gain employment in the high growth, highdemand “green” building industry.
More than 1,200 families from Nassau and
Suffolk counties did not have to choose between
heating their homes and putting food on their
tables, thanks to Project Warmth.
The owners and operators of nearly 300 special
needs housing units will save tens of thousands
of dollars in energy costs thanks to the energy
audits and weatherization efficiency upgrade
measures installed by our industry-leading
Weatherization team.
Throughout 2011, we look forward to building on our
Income platform to help put Long Islanders back to
work, and helping our youth to succeed in school and
in life. We are proud of our successes, but could not
achieve it without your dedication and commitment
to our mission. Together, we can create a brighter,
more promising future for our region and continue to
impact the lives of Long Islanders.
Through the generous support of the JPMorgan
Chase Foundation, United Way of Long Island’s
Community Schools Project offers unique services
designed to improve the educational outcomes of
disadvantaged students. Last year, 142 students
were enrolled in the Community Schools Project
in Westbury, a supervised after-school program
where students get homework help, participate in
physical activities, explore new skills and talents,
prepare for careers, and develop relationships with
peers and adults. An additional Community School
Project is operated in Brentwood by Family Service
With an estimated 165,000 Long Islanders living below
the federal poverty level, families and individuals are
struggling to make ends meet. Together, United Way and
its community partners are working to respond to people
in crisis, create opportunities for individuals and families
to access and maintain housing and ensure financial
stability that leads to long-term independence.
The Project Warmth Emergency Fuel Fund provided
$525,073 in energy assistance to 1,370 families,
consisting of 4,202 household members, with
an average grant of $395. Since its inception in
1995, Project Warmth has assisted 21,393 families
– 68,900 Long Islanders – by providing $4,886,429
in emergency aid.
YouthBuild Long Island graduated twenty-five
students who successfully completed a rigorous
academic and pre-apprenticeship green training
• 72% achieved their General Equivalency
Diploma (GED), 96% received an occupational
and others), 85% gained employment upon
completion and 28% entered post-secondary
education and training.
Under United Way’s Weatherization Assistance
Program, the “Green Team” performed energy audits
and installed weatherization measures for 298
units of special needs housing. This represents 120
homes—15 of which are owned/operated by not-forprofit providers. In total, 840 individuals benefited
from this service and United Way exceeded the 2010
production goal by 10%.
Three hundred participants enrolled in a 6-week
training curriculum through United Way’s Green
Academy and Green Job Corps. that included training
in building science, weatherization, and emphasis
on diagnostics and standard construction.
United Way provided home modifications and
accessibility alterations to 63 homes on Long Island
through its Access to Home program, enabling
persons with disabilities and seniors to remain or
return to their own homes.
The RESTORE program, which pays for the cost
of emergency repairs to eliminate hazardous
conditions in homes owned by seniors, serviced
19 homes in Nassau County, providing $118,985 in
repairs; and 26 homes in Suffolk County, providing
$141,642 in repairs.
Nassau County was granted $695,495 from the
National Emergency Food and Shelter Program to
provide assistance for food, utilities and shelter to
individuals and families in emergency situations.
The New York State Set-Aside Committee awarded
Suffolk County $573,754 to fill the gap created by
federal budget reductions.
Since 1993, 122 homes have been developed for lowincome residents living with HIV/AIDS (or related
diseases) and their families through the federallyfunded Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS
(HOPWA) program. Of these homes, 93 continue to
operate, serving 172 individuals. Additional homes
are planned for development in 2011.
United Way supports 24 community-based agencies
that work to promote workforce development,
financial stability, housing and childcare options
for Long Island families.
Cummulatively, United Way supports 43 nonprofit
agencies that work to keep kids on track and
improve graduation rates.

United Way awarded 18 scholarships in academics,
enrichment and community service to youth in
financial need, grades 7 – 12, through its DREAMS
for Youth Scholarship Program totaling $60,300.
Since its inception in 2002, United Way of Long
Island has awarded a total of 192 DREAMS for Youth
scholarships and/or grants totaling $535,000.
More than 250,000 Long Islanders are either medically
underserved or do not have health insurance. This
leads to a burden on families, health care facilities and
communities as chronic illness and dependence on
emergency care increase.
Through United Way’s HIV/AIDS Grants Management
Division, 1,978 individuals with HIV/AIDS on Long
Island received critical services that enabled them
to access and remain in medical care. Over 4,700
service visits were provided to individuals living
with HIV/AIDS including, medical case management,
mental health services, substance abuse services,
medical nutrition therapy, transportation and legal
The FamilyWize Prescription Discount Program,
which lowers the cost of medicine for people
without health insurance or who are in need of
medications not covered by their insurance plan,
had 3,923 claims submitted in Nassau county,
saving residents $75,769. Suffolk County had 13,300
claims submitted, saving residents $341,196 in
prescription costs through December 2010.
United Way supports 59 health-oriented agencies
that work to provide both a healthy start and
healthy living options for Long Island’s children and
Volunteers Make a Difference

Long Island Capacity and Optimization Tank a Success
United Way of Long Island is grateful for the support provided
by Bank of America which made The Long Island Capacity and
Optimization Tank (LICOT) a reality in 2010. LICOT is the first
resource center of its kind on Long Island and is United Way of
Long Island’s commitment to strengthening the organizational
potential of nonprofit agencies at a time when significantly
less public, private and corporate resources are available to
improve the lives of those in need. Over the past year, United
Way, in conjunction with other partners such as Adelphi
University, pro bono experts and a volunteer committee of
nonprofit leaders from the community, embarked on a capacity
building mission to help bolster the human, technical and
financial needs of agencies to enable them to serve their clientele more effectively and efficiently.
The goal of LICOT in its first year was to have broad impact. As such, it focused on the following three areas of capacity
building support: Leading and Managing People, Increasing Nonprofit Capacities with New Tools and Technologies,
and Increasing the Strategic Use of Partnerships and New Organizational Structures.
LICOT houses two computers and conference space for use by nonprofits. The computers are equipped with access to
the Foundation Center’s on-line directory, as well as other resources like Guide Star. This resource room is available
to any nonprofit, free of charge.
