SECURE Emergency Savings

Update: 3/18/20

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are temporarily suspending our in-person classes. Additionally, we are not accepting registrations for any of our financial education class offerings at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience and we hope to be able to begin offering these classes to the community as soon as it feels safe to do so.

We will monitor this situation and when it feels appropriate to reopen these classes we will update the website.

Here’s what one SECURE graduate had to say: "What helped me most about the SECURE Program was its structure. I knew that I had to deposit a specific amount of money by a specific time into a specific account. This detailed structure helped me to stay on track (no pun intended!) every month.”
