Following a budget, incorporating savings into your expenses and building credit takes a lot of work. An ultimate goal is feeling secure in one’s future through retirement savings, insurance, asset development, etc. IC$ staff are not trained to give legal or professional advice, but we work hard to connect our clients to those services when they need it. This is why, in collaboration with other community organizations and institutions, we organize several financial empowerment clinics a year. These events, which are open to the public, provide a space at which families and individuals who can’t afford access to professional services can receive pro-bono advice–no strings attached– from a professional. See below for our upcoming events. To suggest a topic or service that you would like to see at the next Financial Empowerment Clinic go here or contact us for more information.
