ECONOMIC INCLUSION & WEALTH BUILDING
In 2017, the United Way joined forces with the Mayor’s Office of Financial Empowerment and LISC Boston to launch Boston Builds Credit, a first-of-its-kind, citywide movement with an ambitious goal: to help 25,000 Bostonians achieve a prime score (660+) by 2025. There are more than 200,000 Bostonians who are either unscored or have poor credit. A good credit score opens the door to renting a home, building assets, and low interest rates and fees, among other benefits. With our network of partners, we provide services ranging from credit building workshops to 1:1 financial coaching.
