- Wells Fargo Awards SparkPoint $15,000



United Way of Fresno County (UWFC) was honored to receive $15,000 from Wells Fargo. The funds will support SparkPoint Fresno Center, a financial services center aimed at providing bundled co-mingled services in one convenient location. Wells Fargo, a founding partner of the center, has been a tireless supporter of UWFC as well as many other organizations helping individuals reach financial stability.  "It is great to have a partner like Wells Fargo on the team," said R. Michael Alexander, President & CEO of UWFC. "Together, we can always do more and Wells Fargo has always practiced the LIVE UNITED motto," he continued.    


As 2012 comes to an end, the SparkPoint Fresno Center continues to help families in need. 42% of clients served reached out to SparkPoint for foreclosure assistance or loan modifications. Many were on the verge of losing their homes at the time of contact. 64% of those clients had an income of below $25k and many had multiple children in the home. Follow up surveys showed a majority of clients were extremely happy with the services provided. For more information about the services available at SparkPoint simply dial 2-1-1.
