AmeriCorps Financial Stability Project at Trident United Way
In our Tri-County area, living at or below the poverty level fosters an unstable and sometimes chaotic daily life for individuals and families. Not knowing where your next meal is coming from or not knowing where you and your children will sleep tomorrow creates a frantic mindset. It is difficult to think beyond the present moment. Without daily stability, it is not possible to consider applying for a better job, putting money into a savings account, or completing GED coursework.
