Catholic Charities of North Louisiana’s Financial Education Program, The Money School offers low-income individuals an opportunity to learn how to better manage their income. Attendees learn financial lessons such as to how to create an individual budget, open and maintain a bank account, begin a savings account and plan for the future, decrease unnecessary spending, and use those “found” dollars in a better way, like paying down debt, adding to savings, and how to avoid predatory lenders.
Our goal is to offer “a hand up rather than a handout” and guide our clients along with a better, healthier and happier financial path. CCNLA also offers financial coaching to support and encourage each person who has completed a class to follow the plan designed just for them.
