The Prosperity Center improves lives by creating a one-stop resource for community members to improve financial knowledge, skills, and stability. It is a partnership amoung United Way of Frederick County, the Housing Authority of the City of Frederick, and the Frederick Coalition for Financial Success.
Through opportunities such as financial literacy courses, individuals are empowered to make informed financial decisions based on what they’ve learned.
After learning how to budget, manage credit, and pay off debt, families and individuals then have the opportunity to make positive changes in their behavior. Saving money is a future-oriented action - it not only reduces the negative impact an unexpected emergency can have on a family, but also gives families to more choices for the future, like buying a home or attending college.
In order to create long-lasting and community-wide changes, low-income individuals and families require the help and support of local agencies, social workers and volunteers. We’re bringing together the entire community to set up a financial environment where all families can thrive.
