We know that many individuals and families struggle to make ends meet every month. Increased cost of living, stagnant wages and heavy debt loads can make it difficult for many Williamson County residents quit the cycle of economic insecurity and work to achieve long-term financial stability. And we want to offer help to those that are ready to make a change for the better.
We are excited to announce that our financial stability coalition is now offering workshops to help hard-working families take the next step towards financial stability and independence.
Starting on October 23, 2013, United Way of Williamson County in partnership with The Caring Place will begin offering free financial literacy classes free of charge in both English and Spanish. Classes run from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. and will be held at The Caring Place Annex in Georgetown.
These first two workshops, Budgeting Basics and Debt Wellness, will provide information and tools to help families become more financially stable and independent. Presenters are volunteers of United Way of Williamson County and receive nothing in return for leading these workshops – except the joy of helping others find a way out of stifling debt and financial anxiety.
To schedule one or both of these workshops, please contact LeAnn at (512) 255-6799 or leann (at) unitedway-wc (dot) org.
