Financial literacy is a critical, yet often overlooked life-skill.
The long-term benefits from financial education classes are good for individuals, good for families and good for the community. Research shows that people who attend money management classes are more likely to reduce personal debt, grow personal savings, invest for the future and make better financial decisions over a life-time. For United Way of Williamson County and the Cedar Park Library it just makes sense. are working together to help families become more financially stable and independent.
Starting on November 3, United Way of Williamson County will begin offering a monthly workshop on Budgeting Basics at the Cedar Park Library. This program is designed to provide basic information and tools Williamson County families may need to become more financially stable.
