Financial Capability

The Center offers supports for LGBT people and our allies to develop financial security whether its starting a new job, building a business, gearing up to buy a first home or are navigating changes in career or life goals. The first step in this process is taking our financial capability classes, which cover all the basics, including an in-depth overview of the topic area, introduction of financial resources and practical tools to incorporate afterwards. Classes are generally held on weeknights once a month, and you can RSVP through the links below:  

The Basics of Budgeting and Saving

Managing Credit and Debt

In addition, periodic workshops are held to engage the community around other pertinent financial topics.  Most recently, we’ve held workshops around navigating student loans and the very basics of investing.  Please check the Center calendar to take a look at all of our current programming!
