Moving Families Towards Self-Sufficiency
As a community of connected individuals, we all have a stake in creating a healthy, prosperous community. United Way of Roanoke Valley has identified an increasing amount of families that have struggled to keep up with the rising cost of living. Helping these families rise out of poverty to meet their economic potential is a key focus in our programming. We recognize that happy, healthy adults are vital to increasing the number of early learners, successful youth, and overall, to developing a successful community.
Laying the Foundation for Stability
United Way has started various programs that work in unison to bring adults out of poverty and towards becoming Healthy Adults. We are investing in strategies that provide access to employment and other opportunities; increase the ability to manage personal finances effectively, and help people in crisis meet their basic needs and move them to self-sufficiency.
