Meeting community needs

The Shelby County Community Foundation and Metro United Way try their best to help those in our county meet their needs.

But what exactly are those needs? How can they ensure that their dollars are going to the areas they are most needed?

Leon Mooneyhan, CEO of the Ohio Valley Education Cooperative, is a member of both organizations, and he said identifying those needs has been a concern for sometime, which is why the two organizations combined their efforts to research and produce the 2015 Shelby County Needs Assessment.
