United Way of Delaware

United Way of Delaware incorporated in 1946 as United Fund of Wilmington. Twenty-two charter agencies received more than $700,000 in funding raised that year alone!

In 1947, United Fund adopted the Red Feather as the symbol to unite the Wilmington movement with the national movement, which joined together United Way volunteers and staff to advocate for change.

The next three decades brought a new name -- United Way of Delaware - and new symbols - the rainbow and helping hand. United Way of Delaware campaigns were progressively more successful, raising an unheard-of $30 million in 2002.

Today, United Way of Delaware employs nearly forty committed individuals, occupying four offices statewide. Campaign 2010, our 64th, is on track to raise $21 million for those Delawareans in need.

First State Community Action Agency

In 1964, the poverty rate in the US was hovering around 19%. During President Lyndon B. Johnson's State of the Union Address in January of '65, he attacked the problem head on and officially declared "War on Poverty". Congress responded by passing the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 thereby creating the Office of Economic Opportunity to administer federal funds for use by states on anti-poverty fighting measures. The funds would be distributed to a network of Community Action Agencies (CAAs) - nonprofit private and public organizations established by the Economic Opportunity Act to fight America's War on Poverty.

Around this same time, a group of concerned citizens in the Georgetown area formed the Sussex County Community Action Agency. The group applied for federal recognition of non-profit status and was incorporated on April 12, 1966 thus becoming Delaware's first and only federally recognized Community Action Agency.

Today there are approximately 1000 Community Action Agencies serving the poor in every state as well as Puerto Rico and the Trust Territories. First State CAA is proud to be a part of the Community Action Agency family. This year marks 48 years of Community Action Agencies serving America's poor and disadvantaged.

Keep Track of Your Expenses

Keep Track of Your Expenses
Gaining control of your financial situation and using money to help you reach your goals is possible, but first you must recognize where your money goes. Evaluate your habits. Start by jotting down everything you think you spend money on during a one-month period. Next, make a list of what you actually spend during that month. Be sure to write down everything you buy and how much it costs. Include rent, car insurance, groceries, and even small purchases such as coffee or snacks.

To help you track your monthly expenses, download the Tracking Your Expenses Worksheet.

Pluging Your Spending Leaks

Plug Spending Leaks
Now that you know exactly how you spend your money each month, you've probably noticed areas where small amounts of money are disappearing. Examples of spending leaks include buying expensive coffee drinks daily, eating lunch out every day, and making impulse purchases. While it may not seem like you're spending much at the time, these leaks can add up to quite a bit of money over a month or year.

Make a plan for controlling unnecessary spending with the Plug Spending Leaks Worksheet.
