We have seen lives transformed through both our Financial Peace University courses and charitable giving. Some of this year’s highlights include:
- A single mom living in drug addiction and at risk of losing custody of her newborn. We provided her a scholarship for in house treatment and counseling.
- A single mom of 2 was living in a homeless shelter. She came in to one of our partner agencies looking for help. Soon she was working full time and renting a home. The partner agency recommended that she take our Financial Peace University class. After completing the class and receiving a matching $1 to $1 grant from the Foundation she was able to save a down payment and purchase her very own home. In just under 2 years she went from being homeless to being a home owner!
- Our last Financial Peace University class was able to pay off an outstanding $13,232 in debt and save an amazing $21,206 over the course of just 9 weeks!
- One of our Financial Peace university graduates sent us a letter saying that the stress of having a large amount of debt was causing a heavy burden on her marriage. She and her husband were considering calling it quits on their marriage. After taking the course and learning how to budget, they were able to pay off the debt that had been hanging over their heads for years. This couple was able to save their marriage and feel a financial peace that they had never felt before.
