Money Sense



Living within a budget, managing monthly bills, and understanding debt are all keys to building stability.  When we’re on solid financial ground, we’re more likely to have access to health care, provide a good education for our kids, and contribute to our local economy.  That’s why United Way of Central Kentucky focuses on lasting solutions that go beyond charity to help people build the skills and knowledge families need to be put on the pathway to financial security.




Financial education  workshops are offered in person and online.  For a full list of upcoming workshops or to schedule a one-on-one session, contact Dana Garrett at or call 270.737.6608.
