Our Programs

Financial Stability is a fundamental need in order to improve the well-being of the community. United Way of Central Alabama is working in various roles by supporting programs, community partnerships and direct services — in our six county footprint, as well as across the state of Alabama — to help and support individuals to become financially stable. We do this by teaching financial empowerment skills and helping low-income people acquire stabilizing assets.
