We’ve all experienced setbacks that create upheaval in our daily lives – the furnace goes out, your car needs repairs, a medical emergency. Unexpected issues and expenses can have an impact on us at work. The Bridges@Work program provides assistance to employees in Geauga County coping with challenges that affect their productivity at work.

CLASSES AVAILABLE NOW:

ELIMINATING DEBT

What prevents us from being able to save and get ahead? Debt. The average American has some amount of debt and many have debt that is overwhelming and prevents them from achieving their goals. Do you know your debt-to-income ratio and how to determine if you are in trouble? We will discuss strategies for working our way out of debt and staying out.

SMART USE OF CREDIT
AND CREDIT REPAIR

From pulling and reviewing your credit report to repairing credit issues to whether or not to freeze your record, this presentation will cover all you need to know about how to use credit to your advantage.

IT DOESN'T GROW ON TREES!

How many times did you hear that as a child and how often do you think how true it is? Starting at an early age and continuing through adulthood, parents are the primary teachers of personal finance issues. Need a brush up? We will discuss talking to your children about money at all ages.
