Our Work

Our Commitment to earnings

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 a 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 help advance the common good, creating opportunities for a better life for all.
