Faith & Finances is a series of eleven sessions on financial literacy for low-income or financially vulnerable adults. Each 90-minute session is designed to meet the learning needs of those who struggle to manage their money. Through group discussions, participants gain important information and skills relevant to their everyday lives.
Ideal participants are financially vulnerable adults with limited financial training and a high school level education. The typical course participant has some level of personal debt, no emergency fund, does not live within a budget, and has a net worth near or below zero. Ideal participants are: men and women with job skills (i.e. they are employable), single mothers with small children, men with mandated child support payments, or any person with low or fixed income (e.g. Social Security, disability).
We usually have a spring and a fall class session, each session meeting once a week for 12 week. Contact us if you’d like to reserve a spot or get more information. Books are $10. Food and childcare are provided.
Our Individual Development Account (IDA) program is available to qualified program graduates. IDAs are matched savings accounts to help people save for and purchase assets like vehicles, homes, and finishing their education.
