IDA Savings Accounts
United Way has partnered with Wayne Metro to offer IDA savings accounts. This is an awesome program!

In addition, they will match your account $3,000 for a down payment on your first home. If you know of anyone that can benefit from this program, please contact our Financial Empowerment Coach, Myleena Reed at 313-236-8287 or email Happy Savings!
