United Way of Lake & Sumter Counties is unveiling a new Stronger Families Program for Sumter County residents which will first open for 30 participants with classes beginning July 22. The Stronger Families Program provides families from all walks of life with an opportunity to become even stronger. Focused on the areas of income, education, and health, this new instructional program is a fifteen-week course that meets each Thursday evening and shares guidance, instruction, and resources with participants.
“The goal of the Stronger Families program is to provide a hand up in the areas in which your family wants to see improvement,” Monica Wofford, CEO, United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties. “Maybe you want your children to be better prepared to enter school and aren’t sure what to do, or where to find the time, to help them get ready. Maybe you want to make more money or get a degree, buy a home, or simply save more of the money you’re getting. Maybe you want to learn how to make more healthy meals for you, shop on a budget, make a food budget, or stretch those dollars even further for doctors’ visits, glasses, or the dentist.”
Registration is now open at www.uwls.org/sumter-stronger-families or by calling (352) 787-7530.
After being accepted into the program, participants will meet every Thursday evening from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Sumterville Campus of Lake Sumter State College from July 22 to Oct. 28.
