All of us want to manage our finances well, make sound financial decisions, and secure a better future for ourselves and our families. What can be a struggle at any time becomes even tougher during difficult economic times. Wouldnâ€™t it be great if you could get suggestions and advice about your financial questions all in one place? This yearâ€™s financial and asset building fair, Make Money and Time Count!, provides the opportunity to do just that. You can learn about financial products and tools that will enable you to better manage your money in order to reach your goals. Not sure whether this is the right time to consider homeownership? Homebuyer services will be available to answer your questions. If youâ€™ve been wondering whether entrepreneurship could be a solution to seeking employment in an unstable job market, you can talk with business development specialists about the services they offer. Youâ€™ve probably heard that updating your skills or learning new skills might be the best way to improve your job search chances, so why not talk with career service and education providers about what your options might be. JFCS is proud to partner with event sponsors Republic Bank, PNC Bank, Fifth Third Bank, State Farm Insurance, Community Ventures Corporation, the Hispanic Latino Business Coalition, BB&T, and the Making Connections Network to provide this chance to learn more about how you can achieve your dreams.
The Financial Fair will be hosted at Meyzeek Middle School (828 S Jackson Street) from 10-noon this Saturday, September 25. You can read more about it here at our website!
Also, our agency will be closed this Wednesday evening through Friday in observance of Succoth. See you next week!
