Economic Empowerment, relating to women and families is an essential component to the work that we do here at the YWCA.Our Economic Empowerment Program is dedicated to providing women and families with the financial information and tools they need in order make informed financial decisions. Financial education, combined with support, resources and guidance can assist individuals in making those first steps towards an effective route out of poverty. The goal of the Economic Empowerment Program is to assist clients with taking charge of their financial situations. We teach clients the importance of developing a savings and budgeting plan, how to repair their credit and how to make financial decisions that are in the best interest of the families and their futures.
