A recent graduate of the workshops explained to our staff what the program did for her. Jessica said, “After taking Financial Capabilities I was able to identify all of my expenses and which ones I could cut back on to start paying down my debt to help improve my credit score and plan for my future. I set realistic, measurable, and planned goals for myself. I opened up a savings account with automatic transfers from my paycheck for emergencies after I learned how important it is to have money to fall back on without having to rely on credit. Thanks to Pathfinder HomeOwnership Center I now know how to turn my dreams into achievable goals.”
