United Way of Acadiana has partnered with local Acadiana banks to offer financial services to individuals and families to help achieve and maintain financial stability. Through the Bank On program you’ll have access to the following services:
- Affordable low-to-no cost checking accounts regardless of your checking history
- Resources to credit counseling
- Pathways to homeownership
- Money management skills and more
A cash savings is not necessarily a secure savings. By trusting your savings with a local bank you not only guarantee the security of your funds but will see your funds grow over time.
United Way of Acadiana is committed to the vision of a prosperous community where all individuals and families can achieve their full potential. However, more than 25% of families in this community are not financially stable.
The cost of housing, health care, child care, gas and other basics is far surpassing income in America. Almost half of all households in this country earn less than $55,000 per year, and for many hardworking families, turning income into savings seems like a luxury. Being financially stable puts families in a better position to handle crisis such as job loss, illness or other unforeseen expenses.
We are proud to partner with our local banks for this important initiative. Visit one of our participating banks to learn more about the program or call United Way of Acadiana at 337-233-8302.
