FSC NETWORK CELEBRATES ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY

United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties (UWMOC) announces the one year anniversary of the Financial Success Center (FSC) Network, which is comprised of ten sites throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties that provide comprehensive resources under one roof to help residents move from financial difficulty to economic well-being. Participants meet one-on-one with a trained Financial Coach who develops an action plan to meet their goals. All FSC Network services are free and include ways to manage your money, increase income, find a better job and improve housing.

 

In January 2019, the FSC Network expanded to ten locations in order to better serve our community: Bayville, Eatontown, Freehold, Keansburg, Long Beach Island, Manahawkin, Neptune, Red Bank, South Toms River and Toms River. New for this year is the addition of mobile outreach to bring FSC services directly to participants. The FSC Network is a partnership of nine organizations: Affordable Housing Alliance, Child Care Resources of Monmouth County, Fulfill, Mental Health Association of Monmouth County (MHAMC), Monmouth County Workforce Development Board, Navicore Solutions, Social Community Activities Network (SCAN), St. Francis Community Center (LBICC) and UWMOC.

 

“United Way is proud to serve as the convener of the FSC Network in order to make a significant impact on our community,” said Lori-Anne McLane, President & CEO of United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. “Together with our partners, we are tackling the issue that 39% of households in Monmouth and Ocean counties are struggling to afford basic needs as the cost of living increases and wages lag behind.”
