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.
Families facing homelessness also face obstacles in accessing the tools and resources they need to work toward financial stability and a safe, affordable home. By connecting them to job training, employment opportunities and career counseling options, we help create a better quality of life.
IT TAKES A VILLAGE
We partner with multiple local agencies focused specifically on reducing homelessness and job stability to foster lasting change where it matters most: where we live.
