People need to build savings and make investments that can help them move ahead in life. We help individuals accomplish this by building financial management skills, providing resources to help people save money and distributing small loans to increase assets and build net worth. Our Matched Savings program guides individuals in setting up savings accounts and matches a portion of their savings to help them build their assets. For those individuals who need some money to pursue a mortgage down payment towards home ownership, educational expenses or vehicle purchase, we provide Family Loans that can make all the difference.
With our comprehensive approach towards Financial Empowerment, we go the extra mile by helping our participants navigate the income tax filing process. Our VITA tax preparation locations offer tax preparation services at no cost, receiving impactful refunds without the high fees of some accounting providers.
Older adults can take advantage of our Senior Cents initiative that provides assistance into maintaining finances. In all these strategies, we work to not just provide a service, but deliver high-quality training that will support our participants in building their financial skills leading to self-sufficiency.
