Warren County Agencies to Share Cost Cutting Measures
LEBANON, Ohio – More Warren County residents who are elderly, need help getting a job, under the age of 5 or those who need assistance under a myriad of categories are now in luck. The two largest not-for-profit organizations in the county have agreed to share costs, freeing up money to be spent on the critical community needs.
Warren County Community Services (WCCS) and United Way of Warren County (UWWC) have agreed to share a Chief Executive Officer and an office building to cut down on costs.
Aaron Reid, who has been UWWC’s President and CEO for the past eight years, will continue in that role, but also will be the top person in charge at WCCS.
“This truly is a win-win, not only for both organizations, but for the people of Warren County that we serve,” said Linda Oda, WCCS president.
Kim Cunningham, UWWC board chair, agreed. “There are so many people and organizations in Warren County that are deserving of our help. By sharing our costs, we know we can help even more people than we are now,” she said.
UWWC has established four areas as the most critical for Warren County to succeed: School readiness, workforce development, financial stability/basic needs and health and wellness. Their website touts “because change doesn’t happen alone.”
“WCCS is going to help UWWC reach its goals to have a major impact on the lives of so many people in Warren County,” Reid said. He said there are many similar programs, “the most obvious of which is Head Start and Early Head Start, which fits like a glove with our School Readiness initiative.”
WCCS operates Head Start and Early Head Start programs in Morrow, South Lebanon, Franklin, Springboro, Lebanon, and Carlisle.
WCCS also is the organization that operates Meals on Wheels, delivering about 1,500 meals per day to the elderly in Warren County. Reid says he sees many opportunities to provide even more services to those that need a helping hand.
“At the end of the day, both of these great organization care about improving the quality of life for all Warren Countians. We are so fortunate to have boards with the forward-thinking attitudes of sharing their knowledge and resources with others to lift everyone up,” Reid said.
