Building a Secure Financial Footing
Essex County is an expensive place to live. Housing costs are high and too many of our friends and neighbors struggle to make ends meet. Issues such as poor credit, lack of access to safe banking products, and a lack of familiarity with money management can increase the challenges many families face.

Financial Literacy and CoachingMoney Matters
The Money Matters program provides financial literacy workshops and one-on-one coaching designed to help grow your financial knowledge, reduce your anxiety, and set financial goals for the future. Through Money Matters, we aim to enhance participants’ financial wellbeing, elevate credit scores and net worth, and provide basic education on loans. By enrolling in Money Matters, participants can also get financially prepared for major life events such as buying their first home. We refer participants to the Gloucester Housing Authority for First Time Homebuyer Education classes, fostering informed financial decisions and lasting economic stability.
The program includes four online workshops, as well as one-on-one coaching with our Financial Empowerment Coordinator.
Car Buyer’s Workshop
Buying a car can be a stressful experience. Getting the right car at the right price (and the right financing to go with it!) is a lot of pressure, especially when it is a necessity to get to work or transport your family. Our Car Buyer’s Workshop is here to help, providing expert input from former car salespeople, mechanics, insurance companies and lenders. With their guidance you can be sure you are getting the best deal for you and your family.
