Financial Stability

Programs that encourage long-term financial planning help break the cycle of financial instability.

Together with our partners, we are developing and supporting programs that help families and individuals get back on their feet and plan for the future.

United Way of Delaware’s Financial Stability initiative centers on:

  • 1. Increasing Income
  • 2. Building Savings
  • 3. Gaining and Sustaining Assets

Through our partnership with J.P. Morgan/Chase, our Strong Neighborhoods initiative focuses on breaking the cycle of poverty in low-income areas, like Wilmington’s East and West Side neighborhoods.
