What is United Neighborhoods?
United Neighborhoods was launched in 2017 by United Way of Central Carolinas to change the odds for people living in the Charlotte region’s most disinvested neighborhoods. Working with lead partners in each community, United Way funds and guides the work toward achieving the collective goal of building thriving neighborhoods. Needs of these communities are identified by residents and addressed by a coalition of community stakeholders that includes schools, nonprofits, government officials, churches, hospitals and businesses.
For 2022, the Lakeview neighborhood joins two other United Neighborhoods pilot communities – Renaissance West and Grier Heights. Five additional neighborhoods receive smaller grants designed to increase their capacity to assist their neighbors and develop neighborhood leaders. These neighborhoods are Brookhill, Hidden Valley, North End, Smithville and the West Boulevard corridor.
