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.

Harvey County United Way is helping families become financially stable and independent by:

  • Supporting basic needs while improving financial education
  • High school diploma completion
  • Child care scholarships so families can stay at work
  • Homelessness prevention
  • Disaster response services

2016-2017 Funded Programs – 30% of Community Investment Funding:
