Stable income and sufficient savings lead to financial security, enabling families to plan for the future, build good credit and weather unexpected expenses. Together we are making it possible for Quad Citizens to get and keep better jobs, build their savings and hold on to more of what they earn.
Working collectively with community leaders, volunteers, partners and supporters like you, we helped nearly 50,000 of our neighbors secure a solid foundation for economic stability.
We’ve partnered with businesses, unions and other organizations to help strengthen our workforce in the long run. Income, along with education and health, is one of the building blocks of opportunity.
In support of our Rise United 2030 community goals, we are driving transformative change in financial stability by ensuring more of our workers are earning a living wage.
