United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County has long been a trusted leader in our community, convening leaders locally to identify and solve our most critical issues. In 2021, we partnered with Corporate Partners for Racial Equity (CPRE) to provide them with our expertise and execute their investments with the goal of a more equitable future.
Through CPRE’s generous funding we have launched Multiply Success. This three-year initiative focuses on providing academic resources for children of color in San Antonio. Multiply Success serves all children of color in grades fourth through ninth with an emphasis on supporting Black children with eighth-grade math proficiency. The program launched this summer, with the following United Way Successful Students Impact partners.
- Empower House SA – Empower Youth High Impact Tutoring
- Family Service Association of San Antonio – Multiply Your Future
- Good Samaritan Community Services – Out of School Time Program Expansion
- Presa Community Center – Navigator Student Leadership Club – SKILLS
- Young Women’s Christian Association – E=MC2: Empowerment = Mi Carrera to the Next Level
Multiply Success is part of our Successful Students Impact Area, which helps prepare young people for the 21st-century workforce by giving them resource-rich environments to learn in.
In addition to Multiply Success, we are actualizing CPRE’s vision of a more equitable future through our Dual Generation program. Dual Generation is an unprecedented community-wide initiative that removes generational barriers and enables families to achieve greater success. This is accomplished by addressing economic inequities and disparities for families with children ages 0 to 10.
This past year, we have hosted honest conversations with our donors, members and advocates about the wage gap for women of color in our community. These conversations extended far beyond individual events, with our work leading to 15 system-level changes in the community aimed at reducing wage and opportunity disparities for women of color.
We are dedicated to addressing inequities in the community. Through improved education and economic opportunities, we can come together to make San Antonio a more equitable place to work and live.
