2021 Dfree Financial Wellness Workshop Series
Financial empowerment workshop series focused on financial literacy, workforce development/job readiness, and money smart for small businesses. This year we have added a healing approach to individual and collective empowerment so that families and individuals will have resources and tools to conquer the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and its destructive path in marginalized communities. This form of community-based intervention is designed to provide financial renewal and emotional wellness so that participants can start to rebuild a healthier quality of life now and for the future. Many of us, are facing challenges that can be stressful, overwhelming, and financially crippling. Job closings, working from home, public health actions, such as social distancing, are necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but they can make us feel isolated and lonely and can increase stress and anxiety in addition to financial and health challenges. This series includes activities focused on understanding the root causes of spending habits, identifying and breaking through financial barriers to becoming debt free and saving for retirement, creating spending plans, analyzing family health dynamics, workforce development and creating mental health plan. The financial freedom curriculum is FDIC approved and materials for the workshop are the book Say Yest to No Debt, and workbook dfree® Lifestyle, both authored by Dr. DeForest B. Soaris, Jr.
