Change Makers
Simon Roofing

When supporting nonprofits in the Mahoning Valley, Simon Roofing rallies behind two passions, says Jessica Simon: the future success of children and disadvantaged children, and supporting education.

The United Way’s work with programs like Success By 6 and Success After 6 closely aligns with this goal, she says.

“We have so many families and employees who make their homes here,” she says. “So, it’s very important to us that we see the continued success of the Mahoning Valley and its people who live here.”

In her interview with Roxann Sebest, Simon says 100 years of The United Way in the Mahoning Valley shows that the nonprofit is “in tune to the people that you’re serving and you’re willing to adapt to their changing needs, and ultimately providing an excellent product or service.”

Since 1919, the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley has fought to make change through generations of impact. Our United Way has been fortunate to have amazing support for the past 100 years. We want to honor those partners, organizations, and businesses who have been with us throughout this journey to this milestone anniversary. Each month you will learn how they have partnered with United Way to make an impact on the Mahoning Valley and truly make change for the better. Our Change Makers know that to live better, we must live united.
