Here’s a startling fact: as many as one-third of working Americans do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs.
That’s one out of every three people you meet who are not bringing in the means for housing, food, or other necessities.
Because of the financial tightrope these people walk every day, they are barely able to get by; and that means there is no opportunity to save for college, a home, or for retirement. In contrast, families who are more financially stable have fewer health problems, less stressors, and more opportunities. The United Way Financial Stability Partnership™ exists to combat financial stress and create opportunities for family in low-income circumstances to have a fair chance to begin to eliminate their financial burdens.
The United Way Financial Stability Partnership™ was created to help lower-income individuals and families increase and maximize their income in order to meet daily expenses, as well as to begin the longer-term process of saving and building assets.
