Financial and Family Well-Being

Community Action’s Financial and Family Well-being umbrella, proud partner of the American Job Center, is geared toward increasing financial stability of individuals and families with low incomes.  They aim to help set the foundation to greater independence through financial well-being.  Our Free to Save program provides financial education paired with 4:1 matched savings opportunities for asset-specific purchases. The Opportunity Passport™ Program, similar in nature to the Free to Save program, is conducted in partnership with the Nebraska Children and Families Foundation and targets youth in or aging out of the foster care system. Lincoln Community Response is a program aimed at supporting and linking families to resources needed to prevent entry into the child welfare system.  And finally Weatherization is a program to increase the energy efficiency and safety of homes available to individuals and families with low- to moderate-income.
