Financial Stability

Financial stability is not a simple, one-step process. Many people struggle to get by, even working multiple jobs. family-sustaining income is a cornerstone of financial stability: the key to paying the rent, putting food on the table, and affording childcare and transportation.

By supporting people's basic needs - safe havens, stocked pantries, support, counseling, and more - we are creating the conditions necessary for success and independence.  With this strong foundation today, we position people for a better, brighter tomorrow.

For families struggling to pay the rent and buy food, an unanticipated expense – a car breakdown, an uninsured illness, a week without a paycheck – can lead to crisis.  For those also dealing with mental illness, poor health, or family trauma, holding a steady job can be a daily challenge. United Way of Randolph County’s partner agencies are there to help, providing food and shelter assistance as well as counseling and referral services for a broad range of basic needs.
