When we strengthen the economic future of one family, we strengthen the economy for the whole community.
We’re teaching households and foster youth how to manage finances and increase savings so they can improve their economic outlook.
United Way is leading the Assets & Opportunity Network, mobilizing a group of nonprofits, companies and volunteers to look at financial stability data in our community and work on key tasks to increase the number of individuals who are financially thriving.
We are also helping local qualified families and individuals file their taxes online for free while bringing crucial EITC (earned income tax credit) dollars back into our local community.
86% of the 413 adults are demonstrating better financial skills.
90% of 336 foster youth participants are earning in matched savings accounts.
Now more than ever, our community needs you, your energy, passion, and commitment. Let’s work together as first responders to meet our community’s greatest needs.
The volunteers on the Financial Stability Impact Council will administer a multi-pronged approach of workforce development, financial education and asset development to empower working families with the tools to become economically self-sufficient.
