Creating a Pathway to Financial Stability: A Half-Day Workshop for Government Agency Staff

Thursday, September 18, 2014
11:45-6 pm

The building blocks of financial capability are missing in the lives of many low- and moderate-income families. The gap in knowledge, skills and opportunities necessary to effectively manage financial resources often prevents families from succeeding in various government programs. This workshop will be a combination of interactive presentations and facilitated discussions geared toward sharing innovative ideas and practices for helping your program participants overcome financial barriers to success and achieve self-sufficiency.
