United Way of Hancock County announced their new initiative Tuesday evening. President John Urbanski said that the new program will switch them away from program funding for financial stability.
Urbanski said the funding will give the opportunity for groups to work together to combat the issues surrounding financial empowerment. He added that there are 3 strategies. The first is in workforce development.
The other two strategies are investing in the area youth and helping people develop skills to manage their budget. The end goal is to give at-risk people opportunities to have a more sustainable lifestyle.
