UWBG’s WayPoint strategy was born out of an in-depth analysis of our regional community and current demographics, and a meaningful understanding of what our community needs to evolve into a better, more resilient Bluegrass.
WayPoint’s mission is to create an access point for families and individuals, and to provide vital programming to people living in underserved neighborhoods and communities of color. Each WayPoint Center brings together the region’s most effective nonprofit, government, and business organizations to leverage their strengths against our community’s biggest issues. WayPoint Centers coordinate an ecosystem of partners and programs to have the greatest impact on local families from a physical and place based anchor in their communities.
WayPoint Centers offer…
Basic needs are met, physical and mental health is good and family/ individual can meet future needs based on a budget
Family/individual has acceptable credit, debt within limits, exceeds a hand-to-mouth budget, earns a sustainable wage and kids are thriving.
Family/individual owns at least one asset, is saving for the future and is on-track to meet economic goals.
Each center provides services that are custom tailored to its neighborhood and are staffed by professionals who are intimately familiar with the needs of the community. Waypoint Centers will serve as a neighborhood resource that is anchored in family financial success and stability, coupled with bundled social services, and supported by a robust coalition of agencies working toward a common goal to empower families and individuals.
