If you are an employee in good standing and with at least six months tenure at your workplace, you may also be eligible to borrow up to $1,500 via the new Quest United Small Dollar Loan, a new low-interest payday loan alternative, to help cover a personal financial crisis.  With an interest rate of 7.99%, the loan would be paid back via payroll deduction, helps you build your credit, saves for future needs, and keeps you away from predatory lenders.
 
 
INTERESTED IN OFFERING THE LIVE UNITED @ WORK FINANCIAL WELLNESS PROGRAM AT YOUR WORKPLACE?
Pioneered by United Ways in New Hampshire and Vermont, United Way of Logan County is the second in Ohio to offer this community resource.  We have piloted our LIVE UNITED @ WORK Financial Wellness program with several large workplaces.  Our Licensed Social Worker is available to meet one-on-one, on-site at the workplace, with associates who have personal issues.  They are connected to available community resources and discover solutions to their financial or non-work related troubles.  Things like help paying bills.  Mental health.  Transportation.  Help for aging parents.  More than 75 percent of associates who’ve met with Ashley are still employed at their workplace a year later.  And we’ve helped ease the burden of HR and management teams by taking issues like this off their plate.         
 
We are now able to offer this program to smaller workplaces with plans starting as low as $2,500/year for workplaces between 50-100 employees and $1,500 for workplaces with fewer than 50.

TESTIMONIAL - FROM A MANAGER AT ONE OF OUR PARTICIPATING WORKPLACES:
"One of the hardworking staff here has gone through significant life changes in the past couple of years and again more recently that have created significant financial hardship as she is raising her grandson without monetary support.  She hooked up with Ashley, Resource Coordinator for United Way and sought the assistance that was suggested. She received a full propane tank and lowered electricity bill from Bridges Community Action.  (She had been heating home through this harsh winter with electric space heaters.)  She sent me a text last night stating:  “Aww! The furnace just kicked on! What a lovely sound!”  THANK YOU United Way for providing this service."
