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.
