United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties recently received a grant of $15,000 from Wells Fargo to support the Stronger Families program. Stronger Families provides families from all walks of life with an opportunity to become even stronger.
Focused on the areas of income, education, and health, this instructional program is a 15-week course that meets on Thursday nights and shares guidance, instruction, and resources with participants. The goal of the Stronger Families program is to provide a hand up in essential areas such as budgeting, buying a home, increasing salary, or eating healthy on a budget.
“We are so thankful for Wells Fargo’s financial contributions to our Stronger Families program!” said Danielle Heider, Stronger Families program coordinator. Through these contributions, we are able to connect families with local resources and equip them with the knowledge to make better financial decisions, optimize their earning potential and strengthen relationships within their families.”
The Stronger Families program was recently approved to count towards mandatory job participation for recipients of TANF/ SNAP. Learn more at: UWLS.org/Stronger-Families
