SALT LAKE CITY — United Way of Salt Lake is among just three affiliates worldwide to receive the United Way Common Good Award for Innovation — one of the nonprofit organization’s highest honors.
The award recognizes partnerships that strengthen and advance communities through innovative practices that are achieving results and making measurable impact in education, income and health.
Highlighted from among the work of its nine Promise Partnerships, United Way of Salt Lake was recognized for innovation in early education programs in South Salt Lake. Together with South Salt Lake and Voices for Utah Children, United Way of Salt Lake created the Early Learning Network, enabling many additional children to attend high-quality preschool based on the Granite School District model at the Hser Ner Moo Neighborhood Center, and on location at two elementary schools in South Salt Lake.
