SparkPoint OC — Making Financial Stability a Reality

Getting more families on the road to becoming financially independent is the driving force behind the creation of United Way’s SparkPoint OC—one-stop financial empowerment centers to help hard working, low-income residents gain free access to personal financial coaching and resources here in Orange County.

SparkPoint OC Financial Empowerment Centers help families create step-by-step personal finance plans to tackle their specific needs. Working with coaches one-on-one, attainable goal-setting plans are created in three key areas:

  • Increasing income—free tax prep and tax credits, accessing public assistance, job training and placement
  • Managing credit—improving credit scores, managing debt, creating sustainable household budgets
  • Building assets—savings and asset planning to help families reach goals like buying a home or paying for college

Escaping Financial Hardship

“SparkPoint OC helped me in so many ways. I have my finances under control, I have a better credit score, a nice savings account—and I got help getting financial aid for college. I LIVE UNITED because I want a better future for my son.”—Estefania, SparkPoint OC Client

Improving family financial stability through job training and financial literacy gives hard-working people access to the tools they need to thrive and break the cycle of poverty.

Over 300 individuals participated in SparkPoint OC financial literacy plans and programs last year. By providing access to a full range of free financial resources and coaches, hard working, low-income families now have a path to escape financial hardship and attain self-sufficiency.

Together, we can transform the lives of children and families in Orange County by reducing the percentage of financially unstable families by 25% by 2024.
