NorthCountry brings Pathways Checking to Working Bridge

Green Mountain United Way and NorthCountry Federal Credit Union have joined together to bring their program, “Pathways” to working Vermonters throughout Central Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom.

Pathways is a new banking product created to help working Vermonters with credit and other financial challenges. It provides a step-by-step plan for participants as well as an improved ability to access other banking products like checking and savings accounts, credit cards, and tools to help build credit.

Green Mountain United Way will help facilitate sign-ups and information sharing of this product within our Working Bridges program as this new product is introduced to the region. Working Bridges resource specialists then work with clients to assess their budget, build credit, and navigate other financial challenges.  

“We are happy to be uniquely positioned as a trusted community partner of NorthCountry to help bring this opportunity to working Vermonters as well as continue to strengthen the relationships with our employer partners and workers whom we serve,” said Julia Davis, Working Bridges Community Impact Director. “This initiative has great potential to help further our collective goal of financial stability for all and speaks to the trusted relationship built between our agencies.”

Working Bridges is a partnership between United Way and employers focused on giving employees the resources they need to gain, keep, and grow in stable employment. We do this by bringing human services support directly to the employee onsite at the workplace. This support includes confidential, one-on-one resource coordination, income advance loans, classes or workshops, and an onsite Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site during tax season.
