FINANCIAL SKILL BUILDING
Homeword is closed to the public and employees are working remotely until further notice. Classes and personal counseling sessions are taking place virtually. Visit our Financial Resilience Resources page for tips to stay resilient during this time. Wishing you health during this time.
Want to take control of your money? In our free statewide Financial Fitness class you will learn to:
- Navigate your complicated financial world
- Create a budget that works for you
- Quickly adapt to income or expense changes
- Build solid financial judgement
- Address credit and debt challenges
- Gain financial independence by creating a savings and investment plan
The class material has been developed based on national curriculums from FDIC and NeighborWorks America. Classes are taught by a certified financial counselor and other professionals in the community who volunteer their time by providing expert instruction on a range of financial topics.
These nine hour classes are free and open to the public. They are offered monthly and run either three consecutive evenings from 6:00 – 9:00 pm or all day Saturday from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm, depending on the month. Refreshments are provided for in-person classes. Online Registration is available. See the Agenda and Key Topics for more class information.
Vouchers are available for free offsite childcare for in-person class. Please call (406) 532-4663 if you are interested in childcare vouchers.
