Luke is working on his Master’s in Social Work. Having to worry about a full course load can be hard enough but having to worry about tuition and loans too can make things a lot tougher. Luke reached out to our Financial Empowerment Team and qualified for our IDA Dream$avers program to use towards his education. “Having the IDA funds available has been really helpful to be able to afford further education. That’s given me some relief, so I’m grateful for that.”



Judy was struggling to stick to a budget. The challenge of separating needs from wants was always blurred. She was able to attend our Money 4 Life class to get some help on planning and savings. “I honestly don’t think I would have been able to save all by myself. Life didn’t let me get around to that. Working with Lacasa helped me reach my goal.”
