YWCA Money Mechanics

Spread the word and reserve your client’s spot today before it fills up!  Are you or your clients frustrated by their financial situation or stressed out by their debt? Have you tried to help clients set a budget but then their spending patterns don’t change?  Do you want to support your clients in meeting their goals but have trouble helping them get there?

This summer they are offering the FREE classes in Renton!  This series offers financial workshops for anyone who feels like their finances could use a “tune-up,” especially anyone who is low-income, unemployed, currently or recently homeless, or tired of getting paid and just days later wondering, “just where did that money go?”   These classes are open to anyone 18 and over.

Classes will be four sessions: Wednesday, July 31st, August 7th, August 14th,  and August 21st
Time: 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Food and childcare provided free on-site!  Transportation assistance is available. 

Participants may be eligible to receive up to $50 for completing the class!
