Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach Receives $5,000 State Farm Grant

State Farm Insurance has generously given a $5,000 grant to Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County to help fund a series of Financial Fitness workshops for homeowners in 2014.

Delray Beach (I-Newswire) February 4, 2014 - Since its inception in 1991, Habitat for Humanity has required all families to participate in financial literacy classes as they work toward homeownership. "Attending the Financial Fitness Workshop taught me how to budget," said homeowner Erica Health, who attended the workshops last year and moved into her Habitat home in November. "Now that I am a homeowner, I know how to prioritize my bills and have cut down on unnecessary shopping. My children and I complete the monthly budget as a family, and they are learning what things are important to pay for versus what they 'want' to spend money on."
In 2014,

Habitat will be partnering with St. John Missionary Baptist Church and Pathways to Prosperity located in Boynton Beach. Along with Habitat homeowners, all community members who are interested in improving their practical money skills are invited to attend this eight month series free of charge. "We are very grateful to State Farm for funding this financial education series. By educating families about financial literacy, we help them prepare for homeownership," said Michael Campbell, Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County's Executive Director.

"State Farm is proud to help Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County and the program's families learn about financial literacy," said Jose Soto, State Farm Community Specialist for South Florida "State Farm believes that communities are the foundation of society, and we are committed to maintaining the vibrancy and culture of neighborhoods right here in South Palm Beach.
