REAP Financial Education Classes are specifically designed for women. The curriculum is a series of four classes that cover many important topics that affect women’s lives. Women will set financial goals, learn creative ways to increase their income, decrease debts, create a cost of living plan, and better understand their credit file and how it impacts their ability to meet their basic needs. Women will be provided with information on our IDA asset building program that can assist them in reaching their financial goals by matching their savings at a rate of 2:1. The classes are fun and interactive and we invite women in the community to attend.
Section 1 of this group is designed to be an introduction in ROW's Economic Action Program. By the end of the session, we hope individuals will have a better understanding of how money works in our society, and how their own feelings and values about money shape the way they spend.
