Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Meet Eat And Learn together! Parents from Regions 1, 2, and 7 came together to learn about opportunities available to them at the Goodwill Prosperity Center and NEDCO. Mark Brauer, Trysta Duquette, and Christina Hubbard presented and gave us all a preview of the services that families can take advantage of to empower themselves and each other on the road to financial success. Mark Brauer told us that eighty percent of participants who stay with the Goodwill Prosperity program for two years move themselves out of poverty permanently! Christina Hubbard gave us a preview of NEDCO's Financial Foundations course and we had fun working together on a mock budget.

Parents had this to say about the event:

"Even some of the things that didn't apply to me, I want to let my friends know about. And it was great knowing that even though I am in my late thirties, it's not too late for me to start over and get my finances back on track."-MJ

"As a parent, I really liked learning about programs out there that are available to me. I had never heard of IDAs before. I was really inspired by Mark Brauer. I am interested in a career in financial planning and it was exciting to hear him speak about the Prosperity Center and what he does."-Sarah
