Alli Mitchell joined the United Way of Rome & Floyd County in January as the agency was changing to what’s called a community impact model.  What it means:
  • “The new funding structure focuses on specific programs proposed by local nonprofits that fit together collaboratively to take on challenges in Rome and Floyd County that no one agency’s mission can take on alone. The model supports the idea that nonprofits and communities are stronger when they are United in their efforts to address social challenges.”
Mitchell joined us this week at Brand Red Studios to discuss what’s different about the United Way, the impact it has on the community and some of the reaction the nonprofit has faced because of those changes.
