Our Challenge for Children Mission To break the cycle of poverty in the Inland Empire

Right now, children in our community need us. Each one of us.

With one in four children living in poverty and thousands of students dropping out of school each year in our community, it is clear that Inland Empire kids need our help. The statistics are daunting:

  • 1 in 4 children (26.8%) in this region are living in poverty.
  • Just 18% of 25 year olds have a bachelor's degree, compared to 30% statewide.
  • Of 25 major metro areas nationwide, the Inland Empire ranked last at #25 in the areas of Education, Health & Income.

To address the great needs of children in our community, Inland Empire United Way (IEUW) presents the 7th Annual Challenge for Children Gala. All proceeds from this tremendous event will benefit a variety of programs that help low income children in the Inland Empire.

A Challenge to Improve the Lives of Disadvantaged Children.

Through initiatives like IEUW's Kids Pack, School Tools, and Launch Point/Promise Scholars, we are able to see results:

  • improved academic performance
  • increased likelihood to attend college
  • improved health
  • a reduction in negative behaviors among our youth
  • and ultimately more children reaching future self-sufficiency

In 2018, over 10,000 low-income children will benefit from the work of Inland Empire United Way in our local communities.
