Finances

AnaGomesWith the help of HarborOne’s Financial Education classes, Ana feels like she is changing her life.  “I want to have good enough credit to buy a home for my children,” she explains, “and some savings as well.”

The sense of freedom is “unexplainable.  There are no words to tell how I feel now that my finances are starting to get under control.” 

Another source of help is from her FSS office.  Ana learned how to set up a budget through scouces easily found on line.  Take a look at the worksheets found at a site like Better Budgeting.com.

In fact, there are lots of places you can go online to learn about finances, develop a budget, or learn how to improve your credit. We’re always looking to share those great links, so go ahead and post some of your favorites in the comment section on this page!

  1. For families trying to afford a reliable car go to website: http://www.morethanwheels.org

    Also I am a new participant how can I be more involved with the family self sufficiency program. My goals are to purchase a vehicle and own my own home. I will receive my associate degree in May 2015

    • Welcome Blanca! Thank you for reminding everyone about More Than Wheels. And your comment about furthering your education is spot-on. One you have your degree, you will qualify for jobs that offer enough income to support a mortgage. Best of luck.

    • We are more than happy to link to your blog. Several Family Self-Sufficiency Participants have had nothing but good things to say about More Than Wheels.

  2. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after going through many of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m certainly happy I came across it and I’ll
    be book-marking it and checking back often!

  3. Everything is very open with a very clear description of the
    challenges. It was definitely informative. Your site is useful.
    Thank you for sharing!
