The ability for a child to be successful later on in his/her educational career highly relies on the early education received. With this in mind, Pikes Peak United Way launched Success By 6, a nationally recognized program. The program targets children and parents who live in our most vulnerable parts of the city, to ensure that no family is left out of the educational opportunities they deserve. Minimum donation of $500 qualifies for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Credit.

The partnership is looking for funding, volunteers and opportunities for young people to gain exposure to higher education and career opportunities.
Colorado Springs suffers from a lack of affordable housing and currently has no project-based permanent supportive housing developments addressing the needs of Veterans who are seeking to end their homelessness. Pikes Peak United Way’s new Freedom Springs will change that. By offering affordable housing and on-site supportive services to develop and maintain stability, Freedom Springs will provide a uniquely supportive community environment for formerly homeless Veterans.
