Through tools like Community Connect, United Way of Southern Nevada’s new online information hub, United Way is bringing together community stories, data, programs, and other resources to help determine our community’s biggest issues and focus our efforts effectively. The first digital tool of its kind in Southern Nevada, Community Connect is a free, publicly available resource that allows users to access up-to-date community indicators, compare local information by zip code and quickly create shareable reports and visuals.
With a wide scope of community information, Community Connect provides information essential to Southern Nevada’s growth and well-being, including issues that need attention and support. It improves access to research and data that help inform decision-making around critical community indicators in four focus areas including: Demographics, Education, Financial Stability, and Health & Well-Being.
Community Connect provides a foundation for community members to support and create positive social change in their community. This easy-to-use online tool features information aggregated from more than 30 local and national sources, all in one place. The hub’s Community Stories section connects visitors to real stories from people who’ve received help and organizations who are giving help, and gives them the chance to add their own voice.
