Helping Families Make Ends Meet
While many in Silicon Valley are prospering, more than 400,000 residents can’t make ends meet. One in four Santa Clara County residents can’t meet their basic needs without some type of assistance. This means families are often forced to choose between basic needs like food, shelter and health care.
United Way is working to change community conditions so that everyone has equal opportunities for a good life. We all benefit when people in our community are gainfully employed with enough income to support a family through retirement.
By 2013, our goal is that economic self-sufficiency is achieved by 4 out of 5 households in Santa Clara County.
We are focused on realistic solutions that increase financial stability and long-term economics independence for individuals and families.
These strategies include supporting and developing programs and services; building strong coalitions; and awarding strategic grants to community organizations to increase financial stability and long-term economic independence for individuals and families.
Our Focus Areas
Building savings and gaining assets so that individuals and families can manage their money, credit and learn how to save.
