Introducing United Way of Northeast Louisiana’s Financial Health Center!
Located in the historic Miller-Roy Building at 1001 Desiard Street in Monroe, United Way of Northeast Louisiana’s Financial Health Center serves as the community’s hub for economic resources.
What is the Financial Health Center?
Low-to-moderate income individuals and families face multiple economic and societal barriers that prevent them from achieving financial stability and economic independence. Many organizations offer a variety of services designed to help these individuals and families become more financially stable. These services are often delivered by multiple agencies with little coordination amongst each other, making accessibility difficult.
The Financial Health Center will develop a holistic, integrated approach to improving financial security, functioning as a one-stop hub to allow community members access to a wide range of services.
These services will address the following goals:
- Increase income
- Decrease debt
- Increase savings
- Gain and sustain assets
Financial Health Services will be Provided Across 12 Parishes.
All 12 parishes of NELA will have access to financial capability services. Examples include:
- Access to Safe and Affordable Financial Products
- Asset Ownership Programs
- Credit Improvement Services
- Financial Coaching & Education
- Free Tax Preparation Assistance
- Housing Stability Counseling
- Incentivized Savings Program
- Workforce Development Soft Skills
