When Income Decreases, But the Bills Don’t
Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2016 from 2 – 3 p.m.
An unexpected loss of income can be devastating. This workshop will teach participants strategies that may help them stay afloat in the face of a sudden decrease in income resulting from issues such as job loss, divorce, injury or illness. Participants will learn how to assess their financial situation; analyze the available resources and set financial priorities; create a plan to handle their financial shortfall; and contact their creditors to discuss potential hardship programs.

Avoiding Scams and Identity Theft
Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2016 from 2 – 3 p.m.
Identify theft can happen to anyone and the damage it causes can take years to undo. This workshop will teach participants about the most common scams and how to protect identity, money and credit history. Participants will learn how to identify common scams, safeguard their personal information, monitor credit reports for signs of possible identity theft, and take action if someone believes they are a victim of identity theft.
