CESI 2019 Community Outreach Summary

At CESI, our mission is to empower people to overcome their financial challenges and lead financially-healthy lives.

As part of our mission to offer financial education, we have a robust Community Outreach Program that offers financial literacy workshops and classes in our local community throughout the Triangle region of North Carolina.

In 2019, we offered 213 in-person outreach sessions to more than 3,700 individuals and families covering a variety of topics related to financial literacy including:

  • Budgeting Basics
  • Understanding Credit and Debt
  • Reading and Understanding Your Credit Score
  • Banking and Savings
  • Financial Goal Setting
  • Student Loans
  • Maximizing Money for your budget
  • Identity Theft
  • Personal Finance Series for Refugees and Immigrants

We served a wide variety of clients in 2019 through partnerships with more than 20 community agencies, schools, libraries and churches. The majority of those attending fell into the Low to Moderate Income (LMI) catagory, with a reported household income of $30,000 or less. 14% of attendees reported that they did not finish high school, and 45% had a high school diploma or GED. 11% reported a college degree or beyond.

    Hi Gaynor – We are happy to provide advice within the scope of our services. We are able to provide credit counseling and assessment surrounding unsecured debt. We cannot provide tax advice, I would suggest speaking to an attorney or tax professional regarding tax advice. Regarding your financial situation, if eliminating unsecured debt is the answer you need to provide more cash flow, we can certainly provide you with consultation with one of our counselors and would be happy to discuss your financial situation with you in greater detail!
