United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra announces partner agency reaccreditations and new agencies

Date:

SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra (UWNNS) announced that the UWNNS board of directors has approved reaccreditation for a total of 65 nonprofit partner agencies throughout its service region, which includes 13 counties in Nevada and the Lake Tahoe basin. These nonprofit agencies have met a rigorous set of ‘Standards of Excellence’, which are required for partner agency status because UWNNS is committed to ensuring that donor contributions are invested in high-quality, credible organizations. An organization must be a partner agency in order to apply for UWNNS funding during a separate process in which they can submit an application for funding of a program in United Way’s three inter-related areas of focus: health, education and financial stability.

The UWNNS Standards of Excellence process involves a volunteer-driven review of each applicant agency’s managerial and organizational components, including governance, program practices, financials, facilities, human resources and legal documentation. Volunteers also conduct a site visit to ensure program facilities are well maintained and appropriate for those being served.

In addition to reaccreditation of 65 partner agencies, UWNNS board of directors has approved two new partner agencies: Artown, which provides children’s educational programs in Washoe County, and Nevada Youth Empowerment Project, which provides residential and outpatient programs to older youth.
