AMES ? On Monday, Sept. 24, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is offering training on ?Your Money, Your Goals,? a financial empowerment tool kit that provides front line workers with resources and tools to help their clients take steps toward financial stability and self-sufficiency.
This training is designed for service providers, volunteers, clergy members or anyone interested in helping others take steps toward financial stability and self-sufficiency. This opportunity helps build the capacity to integrate financial empowerment into helping relationships as well as help to improve the overall health and well-being of Iowa individuals and families.
