United Way’s Driving The Dream initiative is utilizing the Arizona Self Sufficiency Index. The Index is a reliable and valid measurement tool that helps case managers evaluate people’s level of independence and quality of life across a variety of domains. The resulting picture of a person’s areas of crisis, vulnerability, safety, ability to build capacity, or empowerment helps case managers develop a more holistic view of their clients and their needs.
Your support of United Way gives Driving The Dream the ability to connect people in poverty to resources and opportunities to free them from generational cycles of poverty.
