The Women’s Business Center is hosting a four-part course on financial capability. For many, financial matters are a source of great stress. At CommunityWorks, we strive to be financial experts, helping our clients work through not only how to spend and save their money, but more importantly, how to establish a healthy relationship with it.

We welcome people of all ages and stages of life. Whether you are working to achieve new financial goals, just beginning

to learn how to spend and save, or have old spending habits you hope to break, we invite you to join us as we hear from financial experts within CommunityWorks and the community. We will discuss topics such as our mindset around money, improving finances, budgeting basics, and improving credit.

Each participant who attends all four courses will receive a certificate of completion and an opportunity for a free one-on-one personal financial coaching session with our certified financial coach. Before registering via the below form, please carefully consider the dates of the program, and ensure you can commit to at least 3 of the 4 class times. All classes will be held virtually.
