Is the Financial Focus Program for You?

Are you struggling to make a budget that works for your family? Are you looking to learn how to improve your finances and how to manage your debt?

The Financial Focus Program teaches budgeting, creating a savings plan, managing debt, establishing good credit and discusses the homebuying process. The goal of this program is to provide families and individuals with the tools they need to become financially stable. For those interested in one day becoming a homeowner, this is a great place to get on the right path to achieve that goal.

What IS the Financial Focus Program?

The Financial Focus Program (Focus) is a 6-week financial education course followed by a 6-month mentor program. It is designed to empower and guide participants to become knowledgeable on good financial practices. At this time the program is completed virtually with weekly online classes and virtual appointments with an assigned mentor.

The Focus Program has helped me set realistic goals for myself. I will apply what I’ve learned to pay off my debts. The Focus Program will help me with my credit because of the ways I’ve learned that I can improve it. I learned how to budget in order to help me with building my savings.”
