Network classes include both financial education and personal empowerment activities with topics such as developing healthy relationships and setting goals.
Savings is central to building a strong future, but many Americans are unbanked. Because of this, the Network works with American Heritage Credit Union to offer all members a matched savings account and saving incentives.
Self-reflection and personal goal setting are key elements of empowering members to expand their future.
The relationships created during Network classes extend beyond the classroom to provide members ongoing support and encouragement.
Network members and staff regularly speak out on issues the members and their families face, through providing testimony to Philadelphia City Council, state senators in Washington D.C., and more.
Network work coaches serve as class facilitators, provide one-on-one support, and offer resource referrals.
Peer support is essential to the Network. Members regularly share resources and offer advice to others in their classes and build a support structure to further their success after classes end.
Peer support is central to the Building Wealth and Health Network. Classes are organized into small cohorts where they share their challeneges and celebrate their successes.
Network members have fun both inside and outside of class with the Network Advisory Board planning family-friendly activities such as paint nights and holiday parties for all to enjoy.
