United Way Helps Americans Achieve Financial Stability
Chronic unemployment. Financial illiteracy. Homelessness. In communities around the world, individuals and families are facing financial obstacles that prevent a good quality of life.
We’re fighting to put every person, in every community, on a path toward financial empowerment. That starts with access to services, job training, credit counseling and money management programs.
individuals were given tools and resources to advance them toward financial stability. These resources were given in the following forms: support to individuals seeking housing and job searching, free educational resources on budgeting, homeownership, job searching, job interviewing, free legal services, free tax preparation, and scholarships for higher education.
