KNOW THE NUMBERS

Together, Umpqua Bank and the Cultural Center are tackling Malheur County’s poverty issue with financial education for the community. For the past decade, Malheur County has had some of the highest rates of poverty and unemployment in the entire state of Oregon for the past decade. Nearly, 150,000 Oregon residents earn minimum wage, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. What’s more, is that 61 percent of Americans do not have enough money in savings to cover a $1,000 emergency, while 34 percent of the same Americans have no savings at all. Financial education is crucial in rebuilding the lives of families and communities.
