Credit Building and Financial Education

CNE’s Homeownership Coaching teaches clients to understand and overcome the many obstacles in the way of both financial security and homeownership. The service is free and offers help with saving for a down payment, reducing debt, overcoming credit issues and more.

CNE offers a variety of other classes and events through the year to promote financial education and community involvement. One of those is our annual Money School event, held each April. Money School’s goal is to provide free financial education and resources to community members who seek to increase their personal finance knowledge and understanding. The event is promoted as an “everything you need to know about money” learning opportunity and covers topics including budgeting, investing, credit, homeownership and debt elimination. Money School also hosts a variety of topics for teens.
