United Way Helps Americans Achieve Financial Stability
As many as one-third of working Americans do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs. Wages have not kept pace with the rising cost of housing, healthcare, and education and currently, 40 million Americans are working in low-paying jobs without basic health and retirement benefits. For families walking a financial tightrope, unable to save for college, a home, or retirement, United Way is here to help.
Individuals and families are facing financial obstacles that prevent a good quality of life. Our mission is to put every person in our community on a path toward financial empowerment. Covid-19 has put a strain on financial stability across the world. People who were barely getting by before are struggling even more now. We're reimagining more equitable communities, and we are a vital force in rebuilding resilient communities where everyone can thrive.
