New initiative helps area residents find financial solutions
Leaders with Partnership for Families, Children and Adults Consumer Credit Counseling Service have launched a new inititave to help area residents stabilize their personal finances.
The Sharpen Your Financial Focus iniative allows consumers to identify their most pressing finance issue and then select solution options.
Consumers can go to MyMoneyCheckUp, which is an online financial self-assessment tool designed to increase financial awareness and provide consumers with concrete steps to improve their financial well-being. And they can also reach out to a Certified Financial Professional for one-on-one help.
They can also attend a financial education workshop for a more in-depth discussion about personal finance.
“One unique feature of the program is the flexibility it allows consumers, as they can begin the program with any of the three steps,” LaTricia Schobert, director of the counseling services organization, said in a prepared statement. “Whether a person prefers an online diagnostic tool, an individual financial review or a group learning session, the important thing is to take the first step. This program makes that easy to do.”
