In Their Words

"I'm a single mother. What I saw in Women's Money Matters was a way to empower women to be financially independent. You don't need an unreliable boyfriend. You don't need a husband if that doesn't happen for you. You can do it on your own."

LauraProgram Leader

"Before I started the topic, 'financial literacy' brought me feelings of anxiety."


"Our staff values Women's Money Matters because we recognize how fundamentally important financially literacy is. It's the springboard for anything our residents want to do in their lives. It's great to have hopes and dreams, but that financial foundation is how they're going to get there."
