Our Focus: Reduce poverty by promoting financial stability and independence.
Personal financial management skills are at the very core of healthy families, productive employees and communities. A basic understanding of money and credit – and how they work in today’s society, is crucial to functioning in the main-stream and a person’s ability to build wealth.
The ability to build wealth, acquire savings and home equity is what moves a person into the financial mainstream. They increase family stability, encourage better consumer habits make a better employee and eventually increasing an individual’s stake in the health and wealth of their community – our community.
