Supported by the Humana Foundation
With generous support from the Humana Foundation, Metro United Way has launched AcceLOUrate Savings, a program for individuals and families residing in Louisville’s most economically challenged neighborhoods, who would like to advance their financial stability and asset security. A coordinated network of seven service providers has joined forces to deliver high-quality ﬁnancial empowerment services that include: financial coaching; a tight network of referral partners, peer learning opportunities; and flexible funding to bolster the achievement of financial goals, including the establishment of an emergency savings account.
Impressive results from the first year of the AcceLOUrate Savings asset security program!
