Congratulations Spring 2017 Almost Home Cohort!

Congratulations to our Spring 2017 Cohort for successfully completing the Almost Home Financial Empowerment Program!

After an intense eight week period of rigorous financial training, this dynamic cohort has gained enough knowledge to confidently master the checkerboard of their financial lives. With the guidance of their assigned financial coaches, each student has developed a proficient understanding of cash flow planning, college and retirement planning, credit repair, project management, "super saving", debt dumping, managing insurance and legal matters, and a multitude of other skills that are essential to becoming financially stable.

With these new skills, our Almost Home graduates are ready to tackle many of the personal goals set throughout the course. If not already accomplished, each student is now focused on and diligently working toward establishing substantial savings accounts, paying off outstanding credit card and loan debt, and making other important changes to move forward in their journey to home-ownership.

The next Almost Home session is set to begin in the fall, and we look forward to welcoming a new cohort of families who are ready to take the next big steps toward building a brighter future for their families. If you, or someone you know has a background in financial literacy and are interested in providing support to one of our upcoming Almost Home participants, please reach out to Caitlyn, our Family Services Coordinator at cfarrell@habitatmontco.org to learn more about how you can get involved.
