The Financial Literacy program focuses on areas critical to aiding residents in making sound financial decisions. Through the facilitation of financial education programs for youth and adults that focus on personal finances, money management and budgeting, banking, tax preparation, home ownership, and end of life financial planning, residents are becoming empowered to take steps that lead to financial stability and wealth creation for themselves and future generations.
Financial Literacy plays an important role in effectuating financial security, which involves harnessing an array of resources, capabilities and institutional supports. Better Tomorrows collaborates with partners from multiple disciplines to address systemic issues that impact our residents’ financial well-being.
