(1st Thursday, 1:00-2:30 pm)
A layoff, job change, or any other financial obstacle can be a challenging and stressful situation for you and your family. There will be emotional highs and lows and sometimes it will seem like good news is far from reach. However, you can achieve a successful new direction with careful planning, useful tools, and a positive approach. Some topics covered in this class include reviewing finances and expenses, identifying sources of income, budgeting, saving, spending, and evaluating debt.
