Financial Skill Building
I get overwhelmed with bills, past due debt and trying to meet the day-to-day needs of my kids. The Financial Fitness instructor gave me hope that I can do better with my finances.
Homeword is closed to the public and employees will work remotely through March 31st until further notice. Classes and personal counseling sessions are taking place virtually. Be on the lookout on our social media platforms for helpful tips for compressed work weeks, reduced hours or loss of a job. Wishing everyone health during this time.

They are offered monthly and run either three consecutive evenings from 6:00 - 9:00 pm or all day Saturday from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm, depending on the month. Refreshments are provided.
