Financial stability is fundamental to our basic needs.
When we don’t have our money matters in order, we can struggle to provide the food, clothing, shelter, education, and healthcare we all need to thrive. And many of us don’t realize just how financially vulnerable our friends, family, neighbors, or co-workers may be. It doesn’t take much to all of a sudden find yourself in financial trouble—unsure how to dig out of the red so you can carry on with living your life.
Across the country, 50% of Americans do not have $400 in their savings to be able to weather an unexpected financial hardship. Having a solid financial foundation in place can be the key to ensuring a better quality of life for yourself and those who depend on you.
