Helping Participants Reach Their Goals

We envision a future in which all individuals not only have the basics they need for today but also are able to plan for the future and truly thrive. We help individuals chart a path toward economic mobility and overcome obstacles that stand between them and their goals.

United Ministries’ education and economic mobility services exist to 1.) enhance work qualifications through GED and skills training, and 2.) provide personalized pathways toward achieving goals related to career, finances, housing, and more.

Most Adult Education and Striving to Thrive participants come to United Ministries facing a variety of obstacles, especially issues with financial stability. After obtaining a GED and/or securing steady employment, the hard work of achieving financial stability really begins. Participants continue to meet with and keep in contact with their counselors at United Ministries who assist with building on the employability, financial, and personal effectiveness skills development begun in our programs.
