Financial Stability



Providing for Basic and Crisis Needs and Promoting Economic Stability

United Way’s work in the Income focus area helps to ensure that even in tough economic times, individuals and families are not only able to make ends meet on a daily basis, but to also make economic progress.  Communities must pull together to meet the increase in demand for food, shelter and other necessities by those already in need and the newly unemployed. In addition to basic needs, individuals and families also need access to the tools to increase their income, build savings and gain and sustain assets. United Way is a critical part of both efforts - ensuring that families have the basics in life and the tools to achieve financial stability.
