In Her Words
“I have never been financially savvy and money has had the abysmal effect of burning some serious holes in my pockets. And not just little holes. Holes that would make asteroids proud. That is about to change, however. I am finally mentally, emotionally and maturely ready to properly handle my money. The weeks of financial literacy courses that The Women's Resource of Greater Houston provided for all of us ladies at The Women's Home have been an invaluable and absolutely necessary staple in my journey into self-betterment and striving toward an enjoyable life.”
– Monika, The Women’s Home, YourLife Finance Class Participant
We offer our services in collaboration with local partners including non-profits, community centers, colleges, schools, shelters, transitional living centers, and the county jail.
These organizations host our programs, allowing us to reach a diverse group of women who may not otherwise have access to financial information. This also addresses barriers that could prevent women from being able to attend.
We coordinate our classes to ensure programming is consistent and the process is as simple as possible for our partners.
