“You can’t give up on your goals. You have to keep going.”
United Way THRIVE
In what seemed like an instant, Daisy lost her job and became a single parent. Without any savings to fall back on, she had to do something to secure a better future for herself and her young daughter.
Through United Way THRIVE, Daisy got help landing a job making nearly 40 percent more than she had been making before. Daisy took advantage of financial coaching, credit counseling and help building a budget. She opened an Individual Development Account to build savings and enrolled in financial education classes to improve her credit and learn better financial habits. And, with United Way’s free tax preparation, Daisy jump-started her savings—and her future.
