“This is a way to get the next year off on a sound footing and actually improve your life,” said Concerned Black Clergy president Rev. Frank Brown. “This workshop, in partnership with Wells Fargo, is a great way to get started in the right financial direction.”
New to this workshop will be a session on student loans and financing higher education.
Attendees will be able to select three of six topics. Beside student loans, other sessions will cover:
• Credit scores and credit reports and how to make them better.
• How to prevent foreclosures.
• The basics of homebuying as the housing market improves.
• Getting ready for retirement.
• The basics of banking and how to prevent identity theft.
“We are delighted to welcome everyone to this important session at our church,” said the Rev. Dr. James Pullin, pastor of Greater Mt. Pleasant. “The needs in our community continue to be great.”
Overwhelmingly, participants attending the previous three seminars indicated that they would recommend the event to a friend.
“Our partnership with the Concerned Black Clergy has now helped some 500 people,” said Mike Donnelly, Atlanta regional president for Wells Fargo. “We are so glad to see another session get more on the road to financial success.”
