Financial Education

NWNEPA has been helping community members prepare for big purchases for the last three decades. Since long-term, responsible financial stability is our goal, our finance and homeownership specialists work with participants to reach their financial goals.

  • Do you have a long-term goal of owning your own home?
  • Wish you could take that family trip you have always talked about?
  • Is your credit stuck at the same score and you can’t seem to get it any higher?
  • Do you want to find out if there’s a better way to manage your finances?

If so, our financial education sessions may be just what you need to stay on track.
