Workshop Topics

Becoming a Homeowner

Homeownership starts well before the contracts are signed—preparation is one of the keys to a smooth home buying process. This session covers all major pre-purchase topics such as budgeting, the down payment, credit reports, debt-to-income ratios, and the mortgage lending process.

Are You Financially Healthy?

In this workshop you will understand what it means to be financially healthy – which is so much more than the one score everyone asks you about today – your credit score. True financial health is based on four key components: Spend, Save, Borrow, and Plan. You’ll also get a chance to confidentially determine your own Financial Health Score and the steps you can take to improve that score.

Credit Card Makeover: Getting Out of Debt

Credit cards can be a great financial tool, but for some, can lead to debt and financial trouble. This session provides an overview of credit card usage, warning signs of credit issues, and options for debt management and reconstructing existing credit.

Drive Away Happy: Car Buying Decisions

Getting a car can be overwhelming and stressful with all the decisions to make: new or used; buy or lease; zero percent financing or rebate (not to mention what color to pick). Participants will learn tips and tricks to have the best car shopping experience possible, while also making wise financing decisions.

Financial First Aid

A financial crisis can throw even the best money management plan into chaos. This session focuses on ways to gain control of a crisis. Participants will learn about financial assessments, expense prioritization, and effective negotiation with creditors.

Repaying Student Loans

Student loans can put a heavy burden on monthly finances, sometimes rivaling the cost of a mortgage. These days there are many options to help repay these loans. This session will teach attendees about the choices available.
