United Way of Martin County invests in local programs that increase the number of job opportunities with higher than average wages and reduce the number of low income families that lack financial stability.
Why does it matter? Supporting efforts that lead to a lower unemployment rate improves the overall health of a community. When residents have jobs, families are more secure and stable. Increasing the availability of higher wage jobs increase financial stability even more.
The following programs are funded under United Way's Jobs priority area:
