Getting Ahead: Free financial training starting Thursday, February 10

Feeling stuck? Tired of barely surviving? Ready for a change? Ready to start thriving? Join Getting Ahead, a free program, with a new training group starting Thursday, February 10, 2022, 6pm to 8pm at Gobin Church.


Good and decent paying jobs are for the educated. Education is for those who come from wealthy families or have never had to struggle financially. Right? Or maybe, you came from a wealthy home, had a good education, and had a good job. But then Covid-19 happened. Or, you are someone you love fell into addiction.  All you want is to be on your feet, supporting yourself and your family, without fear of paying bills, but that seems impossible.


It’s not.


Imagine graduating with a Bachelors Degree, paying off your vehicle, buying a home, or even starting your own business. Imagine creating your future story and making it a reality. Not only is this all possible, but it’s happening in this community right now. People are joining Getting Ahead, taking the training, and finding their place of happiness and stability.


Getting Ahead is a community of people who will support and challenge you as you envision a better future. It begins with a 12-week work group that investigates the impact poverty has had on you, how to build your personal resources, ways to open doors for work, how to budget your money,, how to improve your communication skills, how to network in the community, and provides you with a sense of community you may not even realize you needed.


You are not alone in the process. You are supported by those going through this with you, those who have gone through it before and made it to the other side, and by allies who care and will connect you to the resources in the community. Best of all, this is completely free. No hidden fees, no cost to pay back.


Getting Ahead meets at Gobin Church every Thursday from 6pm to 8pm.  You don’t have to worry about finding time to make your family dinner or figure out who will watch the kids while taking this life changing step. Dinner and childcare are offered at no cost to you.
