work2future Foundation Financial Empowerment Program for Low-Income Residents

 The work2future Foundation’s Financial Empowerment program aims at helping low-income residents to better understand their financial choices and enhancing their financial health and well-being. The program includes courses on Anti-Payday Lending, Banking Basics, Savings & Budgeting, and Credit provided by Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Alliance Credit Union, and the United Way. After the program, participants receive certificates of completion, a $40 cash award, and attend a financial resource fair. While participants attend workshops, their children participate in similar financial education classes. In its initial five months, we have delivered 9.5 programs (6.5 in Spanish and 3 in English) consisting of 40 workshops working with 11 community partners to 155 low-income residents. Technical assistance for the program has been provided by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Cities for Financial Empowerment, and MyPath.
