Launch & Grow Your Business will begin a new series starting MONDAY October 27th. Register now while spots are still available:

If you're interested in learning how to reduce your stress and 
anxiety about money, you should look into the Centerstone Financial Coaching Program!

Centerstone’s Financial Coach Program provides free and confidential coaching to help you manage your money and improve your financial future. A financial coach is a mentor and a guide. Unlike a financial counselor, the coach program is driven by you with the focus on long term progress, not emergency relief. This is a 6 month program that requires a commitment to meet with an assigned volunteer coach 1-2 times a month. 

Link to applications:

The application should take no longer than 5-10 minutes to complete. Applications for interested Participants are due December 15th and for Volunteer Coaches November 28th.
