understanding credit and credit reports, insurance, tax preparation,
loans and predatory lending.
Each participant is expected to monitor and track their spending during
the five week period.
Participant activities are utilized throughout the course such as a
discussion about wants vs. needs and values and how they
affect financial goals.

and future goals for obtaining homeownership
Upon completion of the class, each participant is referred back to
their counselor who monitors their Action Plan and assists
them in preparing for a home purchase or other housing goal.
