Increasing Wages and Opportunities

At United Way, we help place people on the path out of poverty through education, training and job development.

To really move people out of poverty and into a livable wage, they need higher paying jobs with opportunities for growth. To land these jobs, they need the right post-secondary education, training or certification. That’s the key to increasing wages and stabilizing housing in our community. Our partner agencies are working locally to help individuals receive the education and training they need to get better, higher-paying jobs that will move them out of poverty for good.
