Financial Literacy

FINANCIAL LITERACY AND HOME OWNERSHIP. Our financial literacy program helps families prepare for home ownership and higher education. Focusing on the needs of first and second generation families who may not previously have bought a home, taken out a mortgage or financed higher education, these seminars offer an overview of techniques and strategies for short and long term financial planning.

The overall theme is to demystify the various financial institutions and procedures of the US economy rather than to provide specific directions. The seminars are offered by bilingual instructors. Substantial emphasis is given to terminology.

Learn about the process of buying a house, where and how the loan process works, and all the information you need to successfully move into your new home.
