Can financial education improve lives?

If the Great Recession and Covid-19 have taught us anything, it is that the unexpected does happen and that it pays to be prepared. Being financially stable and having emergency funds can make all of the difference. Impulse buys pre-Covid made up a $17.78 billion dollar market, and many now run the risk of falling back into bad habits. 

How people deal with money not only impacts their financial health, but their overall wellbeing. Prioritizing financial planning through financial counseling and access to financial literacy courses can improve stability. We provide a comprehensive financial education course to all applicants and have a list of apps, books, podcasts and articles here to improve your financial acumen.

In fact, a study by the University of Cambridge found that money habits in children are being formed by the time they are 7 years old. We’ve put together a list of some great articles and tools for toddlers up to high schoolers to learn good money habits. There is no such thing as too early! Go to the Children and Money section of our resources page to learn more.

Did You Know? Rent payments can boost credit scores

Millions of renters could get a big boost to their credit score if landlords report their on-time rent payments. While all three major credit reporting agencies will include rental history on your credit report if it is supplied, the burden is on landlords to report payment history or enroll in a rent-reporting service that tracks rental payments. California recently passed a bill that took effect July 1, requiring landlords of assisted housing developments to offer residents rent payment reporting, and Colorado is working on a similar bill.
