Maggie and Dale were struggling to save to buy a home while dealing with increasing rent and expenses. Would they be forced to move to a different city to get by?
The couple joined a United Way program and worked with a financial capability coach to develop a plan to save for the down payment. They also completed trainings to prepare them for the journey of homeownership, which would help provide stability for their family.
With support from United Way and Habitat for Humanity, Maggie and Dale were able to make their homeownership dreams a reality.
“I’m really happy that we found United Way,” shared Maggie. “That help is there as a hand up and not a hand out.”
Health, education, and financial stability are the cornerstones of a good life. That’s why United Way of Southeast Louisiana is committed to helping all our neighbors by providing programs and services dedicated to increasing access and support in these areas. Together, United, we can create opportunities for everyone to thrive.
United, we stand up for the most vulnerable among us.
