The Fight for Financial Stability: Part One

Recorded Friday January 22nd, 2021 at 9:15 a.m.

The whole community benefits when more individuals and families are able to stop walking a financial tightrope and get on solid ground. That’s why we focus on lasting solutions that go beyond charity, because financially stable people are more likely to have access to quality health care, provide a good education for their children, and contribute to their local economies. Hear from our panel about how we’re helping local people keep more of the money they earned – so they can recover from the pandemic, pay for basic expenses, and save for the future.
