Neighbors’ Financial Empowerment Program aims to improve the financial well-being of those in the communities we serve. Some of the ways we do this is by helping peoplestretch their dollars and save money. We provide education, access to safe products and opportunities to build skills around a variety of financial topics including savings and filing taxes.
