“Living Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck” workshop to be held July 19th

Housing First Program Expands to Frederick County

IHA’s Housing First program, which began in Pennsylvania in January, leaped forward with a three-year Community Impact grant awarded from the United Way of Frederick County. IHA is now able to roll out FREE Financial Education classes to our residents and the community. IHA staff member, Jennifer Minnick, will continue to manage our two Frederick properties, Weinberg House senior apartments and Natelli Manor family apartments, in addition to managing the Frederick County Housing First program.

Jennifer is collaborating with financial professionals from the community to present topics such as budgeting, basic banking, fraud prevention, and credit/debt management. Our first workshop, “Living Beyond Paycheck to Paycheck,” will be held July 19th from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. This workshop will be led by Scott McCaskill, a certified financial planner. Learn more about Scott by visiting www.mccaskill-financial.com. We will also be offering a workshop for teenagers on banking basics in August, which will be presented by Woodsboro Bank’s Assistant Branch Manager, Kellie Putman. Other partners for future workshops include: Sherrie Smith, Nations Lending Corp.; Kyle Winkfield, The Winkfield Group; and Lisa Leckliter, ReMax Realty.

Please call Jennifer at 301-662-4225 x1216 if you are interested in volunteering as a presenter or if you would like to attend one of our upcoming workshops. For more information on the Housing First program please visit our website at http://www.interfaithhousing.org/programs/housing-first/
