HACM’s long-running financial education partnership with WWBIC hit a milestone in December when 89 new graduates put the total at 2,001 since 2004. Mayor Barrett provided the keynote speech at a ceremony December 12, which allowed graduates to celebrate their new knowledge of budgeting, credit management, and smart savings strategies.  Graduates can also open an Individual Development Account (IDA), which matches their earned income savings four to one to be put towards the purchase of a house, paying for school or starting a business.
