Financial Empowerment

Are you feeling overwhelmed by debt, student loans or money in general? Has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted your financial situation? Our free Financial Empowerment Program can help!

Our program covers the following topics: 

  • Basic money handling: What are your financial habits, strengths and weaknesses?
  • Choosing and using financial products to help you save, earn and invest money.
  • An overview of building and maintaining a good credit score.
  • How to feel secure about your financial future.

Begin today by setting up an initial one-on-one appointment by contacting Terrell Chambers, our financial empowerment advisor, at [email protected].

After the initial overview appointment is completed, program participants will engage in free one-on-one sessions to go over personal finances and get tips on how to save money on bills. These one-on-one sessions are specifically tailored to the individual participant and will be spent working on how they can achieve financial goals such as getting a car, saving for an appliance, or saving for their children’s future. The frequency of one-on-one sessions is based on a participant's goals and can be set on a weekly or monthly basis.

This program is funded through a grant from M&T Bank.
