The Central Illinois Economic Development
Corporation and CEFCU are co-sponsoring a workshop on Jan. 19 called
"Financial Fitness: Budgeting 101." The workshop is open to the
public and will be conducted at CIEDC headquarters, 1800 Fifth St.
in Lincoln, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
As a Community Action agency, CIEDC is charged with preventing and
eliminating poverty. This workshop will give participants tips about
budgeting, decision-making, goal-setting and more. Families living
paycheck to paycheck will benefit from the workshop as they learn
the benefits of budgeting and how to create a monthly budget.
"There are many pressures on today's families," said Angela
Stoltzenburg, executive director at CIEDC. "Many people do not have
enough money to pay bills when they are due. It's a challenge for
many to support themselves with the amount of income they receive.
CIEDC and CEFCU hope to encourage proper money management so
families can avoid or decrease strained relationships and the stress
that financial frustrations can cause. We also hope to empower
people to improve their use of financial resources. If the program
is attended well, we will look into creating a program series to
address other concerns of the low-income and elderly."
