    Goal: Improve financial stability and independence for individuals and families

A stable income that can provide for a family is a critical building block of a good quality of life. We believe that people should be able to earn enough income to support their family and even to save for retirement. That's why we work to remove obstacles that prevent hard working families from getting ahead financially.

That's also why we are a leading partner of Reaching Home: Missoula's 10-year Plan to End Homelessness. The city-county effort is co-chaired by our CEO Susan Hay Patrick. United Way staff member Michael Moore serves as the coordinator of the plan. Click here to learn more about Reaching Home. 

To achieve our goal, we:

  • Meet basic needs, including in emergencies
  • Help hardworking people support their families
  • Increase access to affordable housing
