Santa Maria Community Services offers free financial education services to help individuals reach their financial goals. Services include spending-plan development, banking help, credit information, and more.
We encourage families to use public benefits and area resources to free up cash in the family budget to pay down debt and build assets. Examples of income supports include food assistance, medical benefits, prescription assistance, affordable housing, even the public library and recreation center. Our Income Supports Coach helps families see what they may be eligible for and apply through the Ohio Benefit Bank.
Through workshops and one-on-one coaching, we work with individuals on a complete financial assessment, and identify opportunities to save money on things like check cashing fees, tax preparation costs, finance charges and other hidden costs. We help individuals understand credit reports, identify strategies for improving their financial future, and learn about basic banking and how to access positive and affordable financial products.View Our Finance Classes
