50,000 working families in the Bluegrass are struggling to make ends meet.
United Way of the Bluegrass is committed to investments in economic empowerment, so that low-to-middle income families have the resources and support to meet needs, weather emergencies and make investments toward a brighter future. We fight for families walking a financial tightrope.
The Power of a Dollar:
$120 can provide free tax preparation services to one low-income individual or family, helping them to avoid expensive fees and maximize their return through available tax credits.
