Our communities offer many resources for personal growth. Often, we are not aware of the options available in our own backyard that provide valuable skills to last a lifetime. Does back-to-school shopping (which happens every year by the way!) bust your budget? Is debt looming and causing stress? When can you afford to retire? Your health is directly impacted many times by your wealth or your challenges in maintaining it.
No stress necessary! Consider attending a local class such as the one given by Community Development Corporation of Long Island’s (CDCLI), called Financial Fitness, Health & Wealth. After completion of the 4 session class, attendees can request to enroll in financial coaching to receive one on one guidance. Talk about empowerment! Perhaps you know a young adult who could also benefit from attendance. The workings of credit cards, loans and credit reports should not be mysterious and no longer have to be!
Homeowners and renters are taught how to modify spending behavior, reduce debt, increase savings, and repair their own credit blemishes. There is a $25 Registration/Credit Report fee per person. Sign up to attend in Nassau or Suffolk and register here: http://www.cdcli.org/programs/ffhw/ Other communities offer these classes too, go to NeighborWorks America® www.nw.org to search for additional housing and financial opportunities.
