Financial Stability

Women offering financial advice.

United Way of West Florida fights for the financial stability of every person in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. 


To improve financial stability outcomes in our community, we work to leverage resources by strategically investing in quality programs through our Community Investment Process; building and participating in partnerships and coalitions; and advocating for policies that help people and families. 

Partner Agencies that receive Community Investment grant funding for financial stability programs are required to submit regular reports identifying how funds are used to support programmatic efforts to improve financial stability outcomes, such as:


  • 58% of individuals served increased their wages
  • 93% of individuals served who increase disposable income by accessing benefits and/or reducing costs
