Thursday night, February 9th marked the official launch of Family Promise Academy Workshops. We have always focused on education and training for our families in shelter and through continued case management for families in Going Home; Staying home. Now we are adding quarterly workshops for all families with a different focus each quarter. Our first session was a huge success with presentations from VITA, a program providing IRS trained and free Income tax preparation through CAC. Our families were brought up to speed on IRS policies and some important changes. It was great to hear “the real facts” from a trained professional. The second presentation was on budgeting with an initial focus on distinguishing between WANTS and NEEDS! Next quarter we will focus on summer opportunities for children and parenting while kids are out of school.
