“When you are going through a financial crisis, you can’t ignore it, you have to take the first step. This class has given me the motivation to get back on track…it’s given me the skills, motivation to do that.
This program helped me to restructure everything. I can say today that: I’m not in collections, I’m current on all my bills, I have money saved, I am back on track. Before this class, I fell into a hardship due to medical issues. This class gave me the motivation I needed to get back on track and to develop my goals, aspirations, vision….
Also –this class teaches small children [about financial planning]. Recently I was on a shopping trip and my toddlers asked “is this a want or is this a need?” At a very early age, my children are learning responsibility, budgeting – they are thinking about what they are doing versus reacting, and being proactive about financial decisions.
I hope this program continues to go on because people can really get a lot from it.”
