Together we're investing in the financial stability of area families so they can thrive, not just survive.

You bring LIVE UNITED to life by helping families and individuals achieve greater self-sufficiency and empowering them with skills and knowledge.

Our Focus:

  • Financial Competency
  • Workforce Development
  • Community Benefits
  • Family Sustaining Employment
  • Income Supports
  • Savings and Assets
  • Manageable Expenses
  • Affordable Housing

The hallmark of the United Way's work in Financial Stability is our Volunteer Income Tax (VITA) program. Since the program started in 2007, our VITA volunteers have helped prepare more than 15,000 free tax returns with more than $14 million in refunds coming back to our community. Included in this figure is more than $4 million in Earned Income Credits.

Learn more about our VITA program and meet Maggie whose family is on the path to financial stability through the Earned Income and Child Tax Credits.
