Our Programs

What We Do

We offer financial education and holistic programming in hopes of closing the wealth gap experienced by all marginalized populations. By educating our community in Washington, DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia and supporting those who need it most, we aim to be a catalyst for real change. Here are four of our main areas of focus:


Our accessible financial literacy program empowers students to take control of their finances by learning money management, goal-setting, budgeting, & more.


Our approach provides real-time, emergency food resources to those in need while developing self-reliance and healthy habits. Limited food access is often correlated to low financial literacy

As a “thank you” to professionals fostering equity in various industries, we recognize those that allow us to maintain a decent quality of life in challenging circumstances.


Our scholarships enable local youth to achieve their dreams without the heavy burden of college debt weighing them down.

Our mission

is Financial Literacy

Financial literacy combines financial knowledge with attitudes, skills, and behaviors to make informed financial decisions based on personal circumstances. Individuals who prioritize their financial literacy have the tools to improve their overall economic well-being and set themselves up for a better future!
