Stand By Me

Financial Empowerment

We each have a unique relationship with money. For some of us, we have to choose between paying bills, or putting food on the table. For others, financial decisions are far less severe, but equally important. At United Way of Delaware, we believe everyone deserve financial stability, no matter where you live or how much you earn. We created the Stand By Me financial coaching program to help Delawareans reach their money goals and experience peace of mind through their personal finances.

The program helps people:

  • better understand their money
  • identify their financial goals
  • begin to make wise financial decisions
  • and, become financially stable for years to come

Stand By Me provides one-on-one coaching with trained professionals. Every session is private and completely free. This allows people to get the help they need for their unique financial situation.

With the right tools in place, improving credit, reducing debt, starting a business, paying for college, or a buying a home can be a reality. Whatever the goal, we’re here to help.
