Providing families with the support they need through educational attainment and basic need resources

Rising Together (Formerly Mission: Graduate & Mission: Families)

UWCNM has integrated its collective impact efforts of Mission: Graduate and Mission: Families to more adequately represent how inter-connected family well-being is with educational attainment. The integration recognizes that when families are stable, they are better able to achieve their educational goals. Likewise, educational attainment can foster stability in families and lead to better outcomes in employment, health, and community engagement. This relationship is supported by a significant amount of previous research and evidence. 

Rising Together represents the concepts of educational attainment and family stability along a cradle-to-career spectrum. Community Investments will support and catalyze these efforts.

Rising Together areas of focus: 

  • Community Resilience​
  • Healthy Beginnings and School Readiness​
  • K-12 Learning​
  • Post High School Readiness​
  • Adults in Education​
