Omaha’s United Way Partners with Cityspan
Omaha’s United Way of the Midlands (UWM) has selected Cityspan to develop a system that measures city-wide efforts in preparing youth for their futures. The system will meet the program management needs of multiple social service agencies while integrating information into a shared data warehouse and reporting system.
Led by Anne Herman and Paige Dempsey of UWM, the data initiative has brought together youth-serving agencies from across the city who share a commitment to move the needle around student engagement, academic achievement, and life and career readiness. The system will be built to scale in the long term, eventually linking data from additional sources in health and human services, juvenile justice and higher education.
With support from UWM and intermediary agency Collective for Youth, the following agencies have joined the initial phase of the project:
- Boys and Girls Club of the Midlands
- Center for Holistic Development
- Completely KIDS
- KIDS CAN
- NE for Civic Reform
- Nothing But Net
- Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium
- Urban League of Nebraska
