Financial Prosperity Center

Many families in our community walk a financial tightrope. One slip — like the sudden loss of a job or a medical emergency — can leave them falling.

At United Way of Greater Stark County, we envision a community where the cycle for financial success exists. In partnership with OhioMeansJobs, we established the Financial Prosperity Center, a facet of our organization dedicated to empowering individuals and families as they find their financial footing.

Whether you’re recently unemployed or you’re struggling to live paycheck-to-paycheck, we’ll provide you with the resources and skills you need to achieve long-term financial stability.
