Success Stories

Molly White

"The Homeword trainer helped me understand how much I could afford, the options in mortgages, how to qualify for a loan, and what to look out for when choosing a realtor, making an offer, analyzing closing costs, and avoiding foreclosure. This class was low cost, with convenient scheduling options, and chock-full of valuable information."

Jessie McQuillan

"People assume that educated young professionals like myself have a strong grasp of financial matters in our personal lives, but I really didn't understand many of the basics until I participated in the ‘Financial Fitness’ series. These classes helped me to understand how insurance, investing, banking and other financial management matters can help me build a stronger, better future."
