Dorcas Ministries is holding an 11 week program called Faith and Finance beginning April 8th and ending on June 17th.
The Faith and Finance program offers a context for low- to moderate-income individuals to learn best practices of financial literacy. Participants learn basic financial management skills and build awareness of financial practices and systems in order to overcome real world pitfalls on the path to financial health. The curriculum, created by The Chalmers Center, is written in such a way that participants are drawn into a deeper relationship with Jesus and one another while gaining needed financial skills. Each week, dinner will be provided for participants.
According to Jill Straight, Outreach Director, “The lessons are great for folks struggling to make ends meet on a tight income and cover topics such as: managing debt, taking loans, saving for an emergency and increasing your credit score.” Graduates of the program will be prepared to live as financially-secure members of their communities.
Classes are held on-site at 187 High House Road, Cary, from 6:00 – 9:00pm. The class is free and will include dinner. Sign up by calling 919.469.9861, ext. 201 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
