Many low income and working-class families in the Greater Atlanta area do not have enough bankability to achieve goals like qualifying for a mortgage or funding higher education. They lack the financial literacy and money management skills that would enable them to increase their savings, reduce their debt and improve their credit.

To help individuals and families across Greater Atlanta, Making Wages Work provides one-on-one coaching and coordinates financial education, products, services and opportunities to help families become more financially stable and able to reach their goals. Through United Way of Greater Atlanta’s umbrella program the Financial Capability Network, Making Wages Work has helped more than 1,000 individuals with financial coaching services so they can increase income, increase savings, improve credit and reduce their debt.
