United Way of Kenosha County is a small city United Way with big potential. Kenosha is located on Lake Michigan 50 miles north of Chicago and 30 miles south of Milwaukee, with Racine County immediately north.
There are four staff positions including the CEO and an additional four staff in the Building our Future initiative, a Strive model aspiring to change the disparity in education outcomes.
With an active VITA program and hundreds of volunteers participating in Readers are Leaders, United Way of Kenosha has accomplished much. While resources have been limited, they are destined to grow with a visionary board and a close-knit and dedicated team.
