Video: United Way and Families

Financially stable families are the bedrock to strong communities. In the communities that need help the most, United Way’s Financial Stability Centers are utilizing the latest national research and a locally proven service delivery model to achieve life-changing results. (You can read more about these life-changing results here.)

This “all-in-one,” comprehensive service model provides financial education, credit counseling and repair, workforce development and training, job search support and free tax prep.

With four locations in communities facing high poverty rates (Lynn, Roxbury, Chelsea, Lawrence) the Centers bring together a continuum of services from multiple partner organizations under one roof.

Research shows that clients benefiting from this center-based approach and coaching are far more likely to achieve a major financial stability outcome such as increasing income, net worth or credit scores.
