Catholic Charities of North Louisiana’s Financial Education Program, The Money $chool® , offers low-income individuals an opportunity to learn how to better manage their income.
Money $chool® classes teach clients tips on energy conservation to cut utility cost, how to budge and prepare meals at home, as well as the importance of having savings. During a one-on-one financial coaching session, the case worker and the client explore ways to cut monthly expenses, taking a critical look at spending habits, how to prioritize bills every month, and plan for a stable financial future.
Attendees also learn how to use money in a better way, by paying down debt, adding to savings, and creating a stable future for self and family.
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 empowerment coaching to support and encourage each person who has completed a class to follow the plan designed just for them.
