IMPACT! Empowering a Financially Stable Future

Posted on

Giving people the tools they need to build their own financially stable futures is a key element of United Way’s work in Jackson County. We’re investing in Community Action Agency’s Financial Empowerment Program to do just that. Check out this recent success story:

During a conversation with a CAA client who recently completed the online Homebuyer Education program, he shared that completion of the FREE Financial Stability courses gave him the confidence and knowledge to increase his credit score and lower his debt-to-income ratios. This resulted in approval of his mortgage loan—meaning he is closing on the purchase of his first-ever home.

Not only will this person have a home, he’ll have the knowledge and tools to manage his budget for a lifetime. He’s created his pathway to financial stability. With your help, we can make sure many more have that same opportunity. Please support United Way today!
