Getting off the poverty cycle
We might not be able to fix the cycle of poverty, but we can break it by providing people with financial literacy, marketable skills, and hope.
Let’s get some finances in order
Imagine a community where people from all walks of life have the work skills to cover their financial needs and now help us make that a reality.
When families are stable, our community is stronger. One way that Metro United Way helps individuals strengthen their families is through local and national financial empowerment partnerships with the Siemer Institute, the Humana Foundation grant known as AcceLOUrate Savings and the JPMorgan Chase Advancing Cities grant.
