MAXINE: THE COMMUNITY IMPACT FUND AT WORK
Paying bills, helping grandkids get clothes and reducing debts. That’s what local people who work with United Way Community Impact Fund partner program, Creating Assets, Savings and Hope (C.A.S.H.), plan to do with the tax credits the program helped them receive.
Maxine learned about C.A.S.H. when she realized her work was close to a tax preparation site. Co-workers were talking about the free service and she asked if the program could help her. When she arrived for her free tax preparation, she found that C.A.S.H. had so much more to offer. Maxine said that the program connected her to community resources and helped her learn about other local services.
Thanks to thousands of local people coming together to invest in United Way's Community Impact Fund, people like Maxine have the resources they need to thrive.
