Financial Literacy

Everyone needs to understand money basics.  We all make financial decisions on a daily basis.  With limited resources, smart decisions make a difference. The decisions we make can have short term and long term consequences. Understanding budgeting, bank accounts, credit and credit scores, savings options, loans and even identity theft will make a difference in your long term financial security.  If you don’t already understand these fundamentals, we hope you will take advantage of the resources below to begin to secure your financial future.
