As future homeowners partner with Habitat for Humanity to build a place they can call home, they work hundreds of hours to secure a better future for themselves and their families. Those future homeowners work to build their home — and the homes of others — alongside volunteers, but they also take steps that will help ensure their long-term success once they are in the home. Homeowners will not stay homeowners if they do not learn to take charge of their financial life.
All future Habitat homeowners participate in financial education classes that help them develop a solid foundation, often before the building process even begins.
Laura, a Habitat homeowner who has lived in the home she helped build for approximately a year and a half, says Habitat for Humanity’s classes can have a long-lasting, generational impact. “They set you up for success,” she says, “creating that sense of security that comes not only from homeownership, but savings and investments.”
We’d like you to join us for our next “Financial Peace University,” – a nine-lesson course focusing on money management taught by financial guru, Dave Ramsey and facilitated by Janie Hamilton. Janie is a Financial Peace University graduate, and she lives the methods learned through the course. She will present Dave’s tried and true method to walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future and much more.
The best way to jump-start your financial planning and to see the most significant life-change is to join our local group and experience the class with other people. Classes typically meet for two hours once a week for nine weeks. The accountability and motivation you receive from discussing the lessons and meeting people face-to-face is the key to changing your life! Our classes start up in January.
“When we sit down, the very first class, we have them create a budget and list all of their outgoing payments and all of their incoming money each month so that they can get hands-on and actually see what’s going on,” says Janie Hamilton, course facilitator.
When you start “Financial Peace University,” you get immediate access to your online account which includes video of Dave’s teaching as well as additional reading and tools to help you win with money! Go through the video lessons and join our local group Monday nights starting in January for extra encouragement.
