SparkPoint OC Financial Empowerment Centers

If you are struggling to make ends meet, you might not have time to get help at multiple locations or know what programs are available to you. That’s why United Way created SparkPoint OC: one-stop Orange County financial empowerment centers where hard working low-income residents can access a full range of free services. Families are teamed with a one-on-one financial coach who assist them with creating a step-by-step plan in three areas:

  • Increasing income, from accessing public assistance to free tax prep, to job training and placement
  • Managing credit, including improving credit score, managing debt, and creating a household budget
  • Building assets, including matched savings accounts, and first-time home buyer programs
