United Way Releases Community Status Report

"What we're doing right and what we need to work on." That's the goal of the United Way Community Status Report released Wednesday.

It shows the employment rate is positive. The job rate has already grown 2.4% this year. LISD students are performing better than the state average on advanced placement courses and 13% decrease in the last three years in the number of juveniles referred to the Lubbock County Juvenile Justice Center.

The report cites areas of concern: 22% of adults are high school dropouts. Violence, rape and child abuse are in high numbers in Lubbock, and obesity and sexually transmitted diseases still top the list of health concerns.
