Poverty is a complex issue. Once in the cycle of poverty, it is extremely difficult for individuals and families to overcome. United Way invests in numerous high quality, high impact programs to support individuals to gain access to the basic needs and other resources to help them stabilize. Supports also provide the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and tools to maximize income and increase savings for long-term stability.
How We’re Changing Lives
We invest in programs that provide food provision supports, promote food literacy, provide transitional supports, offer training in job readiness and financial literacy and overcome obstacles to employment.
