Most of us are able to lead a good life because we were taught the necessary life skills to be successful. But for some, there are pieces of their life that are missing – family support, financial security, stable housing, job skills – just to name a few. Imagine what it would be like if you never learned these skills? Without someone providing you with some guidance along the way, your chances of leading a stable life would be unlikely.
Our United Way works one-on-one with individuals and families to get to the root cause of what has been keeping them from being successful. Whether it’s job skills to secure full-time employment, financial training to teach someone how to live within their means or helping them reach their educational goals, we are able to make a significant difference in their lives. One of the people we recently worked with summed it up best when they said, “You completely changed my life.”
