Financial Peace at The Neighborhood Center!
“Financial” & “Peace”, two words that typically are not often heard together. According to 2011 statistics, financial illiteracy resulted in:
1. Marital Problems - 37 percent (the highest rate) of marital problems derive from financial situations
2. Lack of Cash Flow - 70 percent of all consumers’ live paycheck-to-paycheck, meaning they run out of money before the end of the month
3. Savings - The average family would have to use a credit card to pay a $1,500 unexpected expense (ex: home or car repair).
4. Retirement - Nearly half of all Americans (46%) have less than $10,000 saved for their retirement.
Personal Finance is 80% behavior and 20% head knowledge. To give hope to everyone, from the financially secure to the financially distressed, The Neighborhood Center at All Saints
(911 Dowling Blvd.) will be hosting “Financial Peace University”- a 13 week, program, designed to you help to get out of debt, manage your finances, and create “Financial Peace”. Overviews of the class will be held on:
January 6 & 13 from 12:00-12:30 pm. Please contact class facilitator: Jason Beito at email@example.com, or click the following link for more information:
