Our community will only prosper and grow if all families are financially stable. Fewer financial stresses lead to healthier lives, improved work performance, and better education outcomes. United Way invests in programs that help adults improve their education level and create a more financially secure future for themselves and their families. United Way’s work in Financial Stability is focused on ensuring all families and individuals achieve independence.
More families are achieving financial stability. Last year, 3,162 adults and families benefited from programs that helped secure their most basic needs, and provided support to secure and/or remain in a safe and stable home.
In 2021 United Way will invest in over five financial stability programs, including community-wide initiatives in the Marshfield Area.
Our Goal in Financial Stability:
- Financial Education, Stability, and Independence for Individuals & Families
