'Basic Budgeting Skills' Attendees Entered to Win Gift Card

Participants who attend a Basic Budgeting Skills workshop will be entered twice in a drawing for a gift card. The two-hour workshops are hosted by Catholic Charities in Erie and Huron Counties.

Participants will learn to take control of their finances by learning how to budget, save for the future and pay off debt.

“Research has shown that at least 50 percent of the population does not know what or how to budget,” said Roxanne Sandles, Catholic Charities Housing Program Coordinator. “When you have the skills and knowledge to make wise choices with your money, you reduce stress and gain control of your situation. The comment we hear the most is, ‘I didn’t know it was that easy.’ Others attendees have said they have made significant changes in their household budget based on what they learned.”

For workshop dates, times, locations and to register, please contact Catholic Charities at 419-668-3073, ext. 103 or msommers@toledodiocese.org. Funding for the workshops is provided by Norwalk Area United Fund and GeoTrac Foundation.

“A friend told me about La Posada. I came and I was surprised because it doesn’t look like a shelter. It looks just like a home. I was so glad when they told me we could stay. They’ve been so good to me. Honestly, none of this would be happening if I hadn’t been here. They’ve helped me so much.” – Marquita, La Posada resident
