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.

 

Safety Net Programs
Many working poor individuals and families in the River Valley struggle each day and lack access to the basic necessities of life such as food, shelter and clothing.  River Valley United Way partners with local non-profit agencies to form a safety net to help meet the needs of those that are struggling.
