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.
The Columbus Area United Way Financial Stability Goal:
"Reduce to 5% the number of families who are below poverty (families with related children under the age of 18)"
The United Way partners with local agencies to provide to those in poverty in the areas of Employment, Crisis/Safety Net, Income Support, Affordable Housing, and Managing Expenses.
