A key part of our mission is to advocate for the public policy positions that support the work we’re doing. We hope you will take the opportunity to consider these issues and we look forward to working with you to help guide more Hoosiers on the path to self-sufficiency. View Agenda »


Financial Stability -- Providing An Independent Future

Financial stability is critical for families and individuals to thrive. Unfortunately, for many people in Central Indiana, their education and job skills do not enable them to earn enough income to support themselves or their families.

According to the United Way of Central Indiana 2012 Income Assessment, the reasons individuals have difficulty finding employment include insufficient education, lack of affordable child care, and lack of “soft” skills including relationship skills and job training.

To ensure people have what is needed to foster financial stability, we are investing in:

  • Job training and coaching for employment
  • Coaching to manage expenses and build savings and assets
  • Tax preparation
  • Services for people with disabilities
  • Legal services

Join us in advocating for services and legislation that support a stable income for Central Indiana. Learn more about our legislative priorities in our 2017 Public Policy Agenda.
