The Purdue Cooperative Extension Service in Allen County continues
to host the "GET CHECKING" workshop for the Bank On Fort Wayne
initiative. This workshop is for clients and families who have never had
checking or savings accounts at a bank or credit union, mismanaged
accounts at banks and credits unions so those accounts are now closed without committing fraud, or have accounts, but continue to still use predatory lenders.
Workshop dates are December 12, January 23, 1-5 pm; February 18, 5-9 pm; March 18, 1-5 pm; April 15, 5-9 pm; May 14, 1-5 pm, and June 16, 5-9 pm. Workshop topics include an introduction to the program as well as Choosing an Account Right for You; Managing Your Account; Keys to Successful Money Management and Credit. All workshops will be held at the Allen County Extension Office and are free and open to the public.
Pre-registration is required. At the completion of the workshop, the
participants will receive a certificate that will allow them to open an
account at a participating bank or credit union. A $50 incentive is
available for opening an account, if qualified.
For further information, to register or to receive a registration
