United Way of Greater Cincinnati President and CEO Michael Johnson stepped into the role July 9, 2018.

When Michael Johnson stepped into the role as the next President and CEO of the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, he also stepped out into the community. He met with people living in a homeless camp downtown. Next, he will host pop-up community events to find out more about the issues facing neighbors living in each of the counties the United Way serves.

Part of his work ahead will be to develop a multi-year fundraising plan to support the United Way's efforts to help children and families in poverty. The United Way is leading the largest organized poverty initiative in our community.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss those efforts are United Way of Greater Cincinnati President and CEO Michael Johnson; and Senior Vice President and Chief Impact Officer Ross Meyer.
