Benefits Hub

About Us

Welcome to the Benefits Hub! Everyday financial tools.

Are you balancing a combination of school, work, or life? Are you working as hard as you can, but still having a hard time keeping up with bills and the rising cost of living? United Way’s Benefits Hub will help you get by, get ahead, and stay ahead, so that you can achieve your college and career goals.

We’ll work with you to “get by” by connecting you with emergency assistance and important income supports to mitigate whatever crisis you’re facing today. Let’s tackle it one step at a time so that you can focus on your other priorities.

Once you’ve achieved stability, we’ll help you “get ahead” by creating and building savings. And finally we’ll make sure you “stay ahead” by talking through ways to improve your credit score and building a plan with you to continue to build assets and ultimately reach your financial goals.
