Financial Stability

We See Lives Changed.

United Way of Palm Beach County funds ten local programs that support employment for adults with disabilities and provide financial coaching and services. These programs help households increase income, build savings, and grow assets.

Our Impact:

  • $12.5M in tax refunds returned to hard-working families through Taxes Filed Free initiative.
  • 95% of individuals served by United Way funded programs gained or maintained employment.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program

For the past 21 years, United Way and our primary partner, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), have offered free tax preparation services to low- to moderate-income PBC families to help them achieve financial stability and self-sufficiency. Since 2003, our free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program has helped return approximately $277 million in refunds to Palm Beach County residents, generating over $412 million in economic impact.
