Financial Stability

United Way fights to put every person in our community on a path toward financial empowerment. That starts with access to services, job training, credit counseling, and money management programs.

United Way and our partners in LaPorte County are helping individuals and families build strong, stable foundations through resources and programs that enable them to achieve stable employment and financial literacy. We invest in partners that offer job training and placement, financial education, free tax preparation, and legal advice that helps adults and families succeed in work and in life.

When you raise your hand to support Financial Stability, you empower adults and families in LaPorte County to move from surviving to thriving. That is how we LIVE UNITED.
