Financial Literacy

Most financial decisions are made from an emotive position rather than a rational process. Hope Financial Literacy educates and empowers our clients to make better decisions with their money.


Hope Advocacy supports our clients in any area of need. Whether it be financial, social, legal, or personal, an HCM advocate will be there to fight for justice, mercy, compassion and grace.

I cannot begin to explain how valuable I have found this progam. When I entered the program I was incredibly distraught and had not a clue about how to dig my way out of my hole. Now I have hope and am inspired to stick to an incredibly detailed budget with relief. Thankyou!
