Poverty had Terry on the wrong path. Formerly incarcerated and facing a lack of opportunity, Terry was finding it more difficult to get his life on track. After enrolling in United Way’s financial stability services, Terry has a renewed outlook for he and his family’s future. Once we offered him credit counseling and showed him how to manage his finances, he has been able to turn things around. Terry is now on his way to becoming a homeowner and is working two jobs to help him realize his dream.
United, we face poverty in Southeast Louisiana.
