Financial literacy is having the knowledge and skills to make informed judgments and effective decisions about money management.
Financial literacy is critical for survival in today’s society. Learning to build and keep assets is a critical factor in
rising from poverty.
Developed through a partnership involving Lutheran Social Service Financial Counseling Service, the Minnesota Office of Economic Opportunity
and the Minnesota Community Action Partnership, the Four Cornerstones of Financial Literacy curriculum uses the learning circle method and
includes a leader’s guide to facilitation.
One on one budget counseling sessions are available to those seeking assistance from any of Lakes & Pines programs.
Contact the Community Services Department at 320-679-1800 (Option 4) to set up an appointment.
