United Way helps Americans achieve financial stability
In 2008, United Way initiated an ambitious 10-year plan to cut in half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable. With your help, we believe that by 2018 we can help 1.9 million working families get on the road to economic independence.
To address the obstacles that prevent hard working families from getting ahead financially, we are focused on initiatives that promote community-change strategies to help families meet their basic needs, while gaining the financial capability to plan for, and accomplish, their long-term financial goals. Over 300 United Ways and their local community partners are engaged in activities and initiatives to help build the financial stability of families in their communities.
