Our PACT for Earnings...
Financial stability is more than just earning money.
It’s about saving for the future. It’s about planning ahead for a disaster. It’s about having peace of mind.
More than 25% of households in our four-parish area are not financially stable – that’s nearly one in four households. United Way of Acadiana seeks to reduce that number through initiatives such as Incentivized Matched Savings (IMS) and the Money Smart curriculum.
Helping others learn how to reduce debt, build savings, budget their income and enhance job skills is just one step in breaking the cycle of poverty. When people are financially stable, it allows them to make financial decisions that benefit themselves and their families, which, in turn, benefits the community. Being financially stable also puts families in a better position to handle crisis – job loss, illness or other unforeseen expenses. Helping others learn how to manage their finances means a more stable community for us all.
By supporting United Way of Acadiana’s efforts in Earnings, you are helping advance the common good, creating opportunities for a better life for all. Be a part of the change. GIVE. ADVOCATE. VOLUNTEER.
