In an effort to achieve our financial stability goal of assisting families and individuals on their journey to a secure financial future, United Way of Pickens County established the Pathways program.

Pathways is a 6-18 month intensive, one-on-one financial coaching program designed to equip hardworking, low to moderate income individuals and families with the skills, assistance, knowledge, and resources necessary to achieve freedom over their finances. Financial coaching sessions focus on budgeting, debt management, asset-building, credit and more. Coaching participants have the opportunity to earn financial incentives.

Participants are Pickens County residents who have transitioned out of crisis assistance and are willing to commit time and effort to improve their finances. Program participants are primarily accepted through a referral process, in partnership with local human service agencies.

You can read more about this successful program in the 2023 Pathways Report to the Community.
