More than 300,000 of OUR neighbors, OUR coworkers, and OUR friends live below the federal poverty level in OUR community.*
The second Building Block to self-sufficiency is Income. Enough income to help families meet their most basic needs, while gaining the financial capability to plan for—and accomplish—their long-term financial goals.
The United Way Objective
To promote financial stability and independence by helping those most in need to:
- Develop job skills
- Increase income through financial literacy education and access to mainstream financial services
- Build savings
- Gain and sustain assets
How Orange County United Way will accomplish these goals:
We are mobilizing our Income partner agencies through Orange County United Way’s Community Impact Fund to support the following strategic approaches:
- Financial literacy programs that directly increase the financial literacy of low-income families and individuals and encourage asset building/retention through financial education and linkages to mainstream financial resources and services.
- Workforce development programs that directly increase or provide employment opportunities for low-income individuals through job skill development, placement, and/or employment retention services.
- Orange County United Way’s Income initiative—Banking on the Future:
