united_wayThe United Way has been helping support families in need and promote community involvement for many generations. As one of the nation’s leading organizations to promote education and financial stability in communities everywhere, they have now taken on a greater challenge of joining the fight against debt.

Leading The Way

The Salina, Kansas United Way branch has launched a new program to attack personal debt and poverty among locals. Home to a 6.5 percent unemployment rate, with 9.6 percent of residents currently on food stamps, Salina residents are being offered a unique chance to learn about money management and debt for free.

The local United Way chapter is planning events and several meetings at the Masonic Center where residents can come to learn financial literacy skills and develop ways to become more financially stable. Offering resources commonly found among credit counseling agencies, the United Way is hoping to pave the way for a brighter future for Salina residents.  Joyce Volk, a United Way board member, says, “We will be helping families live a more financially stable life.”
