Life is a challenge. As the saying goes, just when you're about to make ends meet, someone moves the ends. While it can be a struggle to pay bills, make the rent payment and provide food and clothes for the family, we keep on doing our best.

Ultimately, the life we want—a better place to live, enough money to pay our bills and fewer concerns about finances—is possible if we keep focused on our goals.

That's where this site can help. By providing personal financial planning tips and information, it provides concrete advice on how to manage money so money doesn't manage you.

Created through a collaboration of the Community Action Partnership
and the National Endowment for Financial Education® (NEFE®), the site can be used both by individuals who want to create a better life for themselves as well as by Community Action Agency case workers.
