The Financial Achievement Program is a comprehensive financial literacy, tax preparation, and entrepreneurship program for low-income Latinos and other low-income individuals and families.
The program provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive economically.


Financial Literacy Course: We offer a six-session course designed to educate Latinos on subjects such as financial institutions, money management, debt reduction, and retirement funds.

Entrepreneurship Classes: We offer a 12-session course designed for Latino entrepreneurs who have either started their own business or are thinking about starting one in the future. This course includes individual coaching time for each participant.

Youth Financial Literacy: We teach youth about taxes, and money management, through a hands-on, youth friendly financial literacy curriculum. We also provide information and advice on opening and managing bank accounts and paying for college.

Tax Preparation: We offer FREE Federal, State, property, and renter’s rebate tax preparation services for all low-income families and individuals. These services are available year-round at our Lake Street location.

Community Organizing: We work directly with community members and leaders to address issues surrounding the Latino community.


There is no cost to participate in the Financial Achievement Program.


The Financial Literacy Courses and Entrepreneurship Classes are open to low-income Latinos and their families. Tax preparation assistance and community organizing are open to all  low-income individuals and their families. Youth financial literacy classes are open to all individuals, schools, and youth communities.
