United Way's pilot Community Schools initiative with Erie's Public Schools
Through your support, United Way of Erie County partnered with Erie's Public Schools to launch five pilot community schools in August 2016.
A community school is both a place and set of partnerships that help address health, wellness and the social needs of its students, families and the surrounding neighborhood. Schools become centers of the community, open to everyone, all day, every day, evenings and weekends.
Sonia works at McKinley Elementary, a community school site, as the Community School Director and Dana is the school principal.
