What type of issue is family financial insecurity?

What type of issue is family financial insecurity?

Answer: Local

That’s right. In fact, 1 in 3 Orange County households don’t make enough to cover basic needs. Many of these are hard-working families and individuals who, despite working multiple jobs, are still living paycheck to paycheck.

When a family is earning a living wage and has the ability to afford secure housing, buy healthy groceries, create a savings account, and plan for the future, they are given more opportunities to succeed. That is why Orange County United Way offers programs that empower our residents to take control of their finances and build self-sufficient lives. Like Jeymie, a single mother with three boys, who, after completing our UpSkill OC workforce development program, secured a higher-paying job with more work-life balance.

UpSkill OC helped me with interviewing skills and updating my resume. They helped me take that leap and be confident to apply and [through the program] I was able to find some financial freedom.
