Financial Stability

To give our community a reliable foundation, we empower our neighbors to overcome financial hardship and reduce homelessness — or prevent it altogether.

Whether it’s instability due to a family crisis, unemployment or a history of financial insecurity, United Way and our partners provide education, training and resources to help people break the cycle of poverty, overcome financial hardship and reduce homelessness.

Employment & Financial Stability

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to become financially stable. By connecting our neighbors to job training, employment opportunities and career counseling options, we help create an opportunity for independence and a better quality of life.

Homelessness & Housing

We know stability starts with safe, decent, affordable housing. Families at risk of homelessness typically face obstacles in accessing useful resources. By providing them the right tools, we can help them open doors to secure and maintain housing.

Coordinated Entry

Coordinated Entry is a unified process that helps families or individuals who are homeless or on the verge of homelessness access the right level of support.
