Financial Stability

Helping Quad Citizens in need break the cycle of poverty

By helping Quad Citizens receive adequate food and shelter, as well as the educational tools necessary to be self-sufficient.

Examples: job training, educational programs on budgeting and credit repair, and providing safe places to live.

In FY18, United Way is investing $1.3 million in financial stability in the Quad Cities.


The startling truth is for one-third of the U.S. population, the struggle to cover basic needs is a daily burden. In the Quad Cities, 33% of residents struggle to pay for their basic needs. United Way’s work is focused on improving this statistic.
