Serving Monroe, Owen, and Greene Counties

Our Impact on Earnings

With your support, we work with member agencies and community partners to bring lasting change to our community. We focus our efforts on the building blocks that will improve people’s lives - we call them the 3Es: Education, Earnings, and Essentials.

To help hard working community members get and stay ahead, we fund and participate in programs that assist individuals as they:

  • Gain or maintain stable employment
  • Increase and retain income
  • Build savings and assets.

          We lead or support several Earnings efforts:

The Financial Stability Alliance of South Central Indiana
The Financial Stability Alliance publishes and distributes monthly e-newsletters, hosts events and trainings, and works to expand financial stability programs in Brown, Greene, Monroe, and Owen counties.

Health Care Coverage
United Way of Monroe County is helping local residents locate affordable health care and health care coverage. Having health insurance is an important way to avoid a financial crisis and, under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), all U.S. residents are required to have health care coverage. This might include insurance you have through your employer or through the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicare, Medicaid, Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), Hoosier Healthwise, or Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Not having health coverage can result in a federal tax penalty. Read more >>
