    Personal finance stock photoMany consumers today face some sort of financial issue that significantly affects their everyday lives. Household debt in the U.S. totaled $12.58 trillion in 2016. What’s more, 47% of Americans reported frequently living paycheck-to-paycheck, with little or no extra cash on hand.

    The Pima County Housing Center, 801 W. Congress St. will host a series of free workshops April 24 – 28, all designed to help consumers find better financial footing. Each session runs 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. daily.

    “Change can be difficult, but the payoff can be priceless,” Community Development Housing Planner Imelda Robles said. “In addition to improving your financial situation, you may also find your money management skills can benefit other aspects of your life. The possibilities are endless. Take the first step today and let us help you help yourself.”

    Workshop Schedule:
    • Monday, April 24 - Become a “$uper $aver”
    • Tuesday April 25 - Budgeting
    • Wednesday, April 26 - Saving & Investing
    • Thursday, April 27 - Credit Repair & Debt Management
    • Friday, April 28 - Roadmap to Home Ownership

    The Pima County Board of Supervisors declared April 2017 to be “Financial Literacy Month.” Recognized each April in the United States, Financial Literacy Month offers organizations both public and private a chance to promote educational initiatives and resources and highlight the importance of financial literacy and teaching consumers of all ages to manage their money wisely.
