Homeownership is a cornerstone of financial stability. At InCharge, we support the work of Orlando’s Habitat for Humanity by offering a free financial literacy course to those awarded Habitat homes.
We offer 10 week classes twice a year to new home owners. Each home owner must complete these financial literacy classes to fulfill their required sweat equity hours.
The topics we cover are (download Habitat Financial Workshop Workbooks):
- Welcome to financial literacy
- Designing your spending plan
- Budgeting and organizing your finances
- Attitudes about money
- Developing a savings strategy
- Understanding credit and debt
- Understanding insurance
- Saving for retirement
- Understanding financial pitfalls
- Saving for your home
These classes are not open to the general public, they are hand selected by Habitat for Humanity through an application process.
Swinging a hammer isn’t the only way to help Habitat for Humanity’s home recipients achieve their dream of homeownership. That’s why we teach a 10-week financial literacy course to all Orlando Habitat home recipients. Learning how to budget, build an emergency fund, and plan for home repairs and emergencies are just a few of the many topics covered in our face to face workshops.
We’re proud to be working with Habitat, an organization that shares our goals and values while improving the community where we live and work.
