Financial Stability

Picture a community that has hope and opportunity for everyone — where people have financial stability and lead productive lives.

Oshkosh Area United Way knows our area’s economy. We work with individuals, employers, and local government to create a stronger Oshkosh. We make sure everyone has access to basic needs like food, clothing and shelter. Then, we reduce their need for social services, improve their employment prospects and provide steps to a living wage.

Through our efforts, individuals find success, families grow stronger, and our community sees the benefits of a better quality of life.
