Making an Impact: Achieving Financial Stability

“Having the necessary skills to maintain financial stability and stable housing is imperative to having a strong and healthy life.  By increasing these skills and supporting crucial needs, our efforts are lifting families out of poverty and preventing issues before they grow in to larger community-wide problems.  Thanks to our generous contributors, United Way of Whatcom County’s Community Impact Fund is increasing financial education so that individuals and families can achieve stability and independence.”
