United Way Center for Financial Stability
Branches has housed and operated the United Way Center for Financial Stability (UWCFS) since 2009. Branches now runs two out of the three UWCFS sites, the South Dade site and the North Dade site. The UWCFS provides working individuals and families with a full range of services and support – from financial coaching to free tax preparation and benefits enrollment to employment assistance and credit counseling. The UWCFS is committed to ensuring all Miami-Dade residents have a clear path to financial independence.
At the UWCFS, individuals are able to meet with a Branches financial coach who customize the services to meet specific financial needs and goals. National research shows that this personalized approach achieves clear, long-term results. Each coach will monitor their participant’s progress and provide support and counseling along the way to help that participant reach their goals.
Participants have access to an array of services offered by the UWCFS and its partners including the following:
- personalized financial coaching
