Details for UNITED WAY OF LINCOLN & LANCASTER CO (TRADE) - Ad from 2019-11-15

Dakota, Lincoln NE
By the time Dakota was 16, tensions at home were
boiling over. School wasn’t a refuge. He stopped
attending his classes. But through the community
and assurance he found at HopeSpoke, he
rediscovered the value in pursuing an education
and the true value in himself.
United Way funds community organizations
like HopeSpoke, because no student should be
made to feel like their present circumstances are
robbing them of an educated future.
Face it: 1 in 5 teenage students in the US
experience a mental health crisis or disorder at
some point in their lives, and of those students,
37% drop out of school. We can’t afford to let any
student be left without support.
