Our Multicultural Services program provides immigrants and refugees with the skills and services they need to achieve financial independence.
Achieve your financial goals with classes to help you understand the U.S. banking system and how it can work for you.
You can learn how to:
- Invest your money and make it grow
- Use credit wisely
- Avoid schemes that could take money away from you
- Plan for your future
Special classes are available to help you learn how you can afford to buy a home.
If you are a refugee in a low-income family, you may be eligible for our Refugee Savings Program. This allows you to save your own money and receive up to $4,000 in additional funds from the U.S. government. This money may be used to buy a home, continue your education or start your own business. If you do not qualify for this program, we can help refer you to similar programs in the community.
