Successfully Manage Your Money


August 8, 2019

Central Oklahoma Community Action Agency (COCAA) is collaborating with the Alliance for Workplace Education (AWE) and Community Renewal Friendship House on a series of financial literacy classes.

“When people learn how to successfully manage their money and budget their finances they discover a level of empowerment which leads to a better quality of life for them” said COEDD director Barbara Loudermilk.

The free financial literacy classes will be held at the newly built Community Renewal Friendship House at 812 West 7th Street, Shawnee, starting at the beginning of August. 

Mid-First Bank and a group of financial consultants provided by AWE Partners, have designed workshops to help individuals and families manage their financial future through personal and powerful steps and easy processes that will give them freedom to enjoy life. Financial empowerment is the process of increasing people’s capacity to make choices and transform those choices into action and desired results.

Classes planned include:

• Aug. 5,  Monday night, Ladies night — Money Values, 6 pm.

• Aug. 19, Monday night, Money & Me, How to Talk to your kids about money, 6 pm.

• Sept. 5, Thursday night,  Money & Me - It’s Your Money, 6 pm.

• Sept. 19, Thursday night, Auto Loans , 6 pm

“When we get collaboration between industry leaders and other community organizations like the Alliance for Workplace Education and Community Renewal then everybody benefits; individuals, families and businesses,” said Loudermilk. “No one agency can do it all and that’s why we seek out these opportunities to collaborate or partner with other agencies and organizations; it also helps us fulfill our mission of Helping people, changing lives and building communities.”
