Faith and Financial Fitness Workshops provide information and assistance to residents who may be experiencing economic stresses including job loss, reduced income and may be at risk of home foreclosure and other challenges to their financial stability. The project is sponsored by Associated Black Charities in partnership with area churches, housing counseling agencies, community organizations among others in the Baltimore metropolitan area.
The workshops are designed to engage, educate and empower individuals and communities to take control of their financial health and well-being. Workshops can include free private, one-on-one counseling, panel discussions and general expert advice on managing other financial challenges such as debt management, saving and investing.
Achieving Financial Fitness for Individuals and Communities
Associated Black Charities, in partnership with area churches in Baltimore and Prince George’s County and our funders, have designed Faith and Financial Fitness Workshops to provide information and assistance to those at-risk of experiencing the trauma of economic loss, either through home foreclosure, job loss or other economic stresses. Our goal is to empower and support the financial health and well being of individuals, families and communities.
The Faith and Financial Fitness Workshop events offer a wide variety of financial resources including counseling on foreclosure prevention with housing counselors and attorneys. Participants may also receive information and assistance with financial challenges such as credit card changes, scams, agreements with creditors and information and advice on saving and investment for homeownership, higher education and banking services.
We extend a special thank you to our Faith and Financial Fitness funder,
Fannie Mae, and to our partners, including M&T Bank, for their continued support.
