Financial Prosperity

Empowering People to

earn, keep and grow assets

We have seen the studies….37% of all households in Broward County are one emergency away from falling into poverty. Each month is a juggling act for so many, the ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained and Employed) population are our neighbors and friends who are facing obstacles beyond their control, frustrating their ability to become financially stable. (Watch the video here.) Through United Way you are ensuring individuals and families have the skills and tools needed to earn, keep and grow their assets. Your generosity provides the building blocks to create a better life.
