United Way Greater Dayton Partners with New Start-Up to Help Local Workers Save Time and Money
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area has partnered with Prosperi-Key, a new digital platform designed to help working households in the region who are living paycheck to paycheck.
The service connects people, including many essential workers, with help. Once users are income-qualified, they can access support, services, and discounts specifically tailored to their needs. These lower-income households, who account for 40% of our local population, often face financial hardship but often do not qualify for state or federal safety net programs.
“Prosperi-Key offers a unique way for our local business and nonprofit partners to make a difference right here in our community while having the opportunity to serve more customers,” reports President and CEO, Tom Maultsby, “And for those we serve it provides timesaving, one-stop shopping so there’s more time and focus for other priorities. It’s a win-win for our community.”
Prosperi-Key is the first and only preferred membership platform to income-qualify its users. The process is friendly, confidential, and fast. A volunteer committee made up of members and consumer advisors oversees the platform along with technology and security.
“The COVID-19 pandemic brought the struggles of essential workers to the forefront” said Kim Morgan, CEO of Prosperity Digital Marketplace. “As a nation, we realized that the folks we depend on and who often risk their own health by going to work, are struggling to pay their bills and put food on the table. This platform is for them.”
