Opening this Fall Quarter on the first floor of the Activities & Recreation Center is the Health and Wellness Resource Center (HaWRC) and United Way Benefits Hub.
Now serving both Cascadia College & UW Bothell students!
Balancing life, work, and college isn’t easy. The HaWRC and United Way’s Benefits Hub offer one-stop financial and wellness assistance to help students get by, get ahead, and stay ahead, so that they can achieve their college and career goals. We’ll work with you to “get by” by connecting you with emergency assistance and important income supports to mitigate whatever crisis you’re facing today. Let’s tackle it one step at a time so that you can focus on your other priorities.
Once you’ve achieved stability, we’ll help you “get ahead” by creating and building savings. And finally we’ll make sure you “stay ahead” by talking through ways to improve your credit score and building a plan with you to continue to build assets and ultimately reach your financial goals.
