Financial Stability Programs
Research has uncovered three underlying elements that must be present for individuals and families to achieve financial stability: stable, adequate income; housing; and adequate financial resources like savings to cover unexpected expenses.
Individuals who have fewer financial stresses are healthier, perform better at work, and have better educational outcomes. Increasing the financial stability of families ultimately creates a stronger, more productive workforce, and communities are more prosperous because of increased employment and home ownership.
United Way helps families become more self-sufficient by supporting basic needs while increasing financial education and helping hardworking people obtain job training and family-sustaining wages.
