Priority Issue - Income
United Way is focusing on:
- Improving families' ability to meet basic needs
Why is it important?
Everyone in our community needs to be able to
which means getting a job,
managing money wisely, owning or renting a
home, and saving for the future. One of the best
solutions is to get more people financially stable
and out of distress, which will make Marathon
County a more desirable place to live and work.
What are we doing about it?
More people in our community are having a tough time making ends meet and United Way has responded by increasing funding for safety net/basic needs services. In addition, United Way is launched a new program, Project Step Up, aimed at helping working families become financially stable.
Your gift will fund:
- Programs that will educate residents on managing their financial resources
- Providing basic safety net services like food and housing for people in crisis
