Financial Services

Saving money for future needs is extremely hard when most or all of your income goes to rent, childcare, and food. Nearly 70% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings. That situation makes it challenging to handle large expenses like car repair or tuition payments and forces people to make impossible choices between basic needs. Our financial services help people learn how to build wealth and reach their financial goals

Financial Education

Community Action provides monthly free financial education classes that are open to all residents of Washington County.  The specially trained instructor offers information about banking and financial tools and helps families build skills to reduce financial stress, create a manageable budget, increase savings, and reduce debt.  Also, participants have the opportunity to meet with others experiencing similar economic challenges.  Participants work collaboratively to help each other find solutions to everyday financial struggles.
