EXCITING PILOT PROGRAM
Community Mobile Resource Center
COMPASS is pleased to join as a partner in the launch of a pilot Community Mobile Resource Center with the Evanston Public Library, Evanston Community Bank & Trust, and Family Focus Evanston.
The Resource Center, partially funded through a grant from the Evanston Community Foundation, is being created with the intent, to advance community knowledge around topics of personal finance, law, and health. As a partner, we look forward to working with refugee and asylee attendees to design resources and tools that promote understanding and self-confidence and contribute to attendees’ development of a long-term financial vision that supports well-being and personal growth.
Monthly, 90-minute topical classes will be at Family Focus with childcare available. Following our September kickoff, there will be a session on October 15, 2019, called “How to Find a Lawyer If You Can’t Afford One.” Future sessions will be planned with input from the community.
Please contact us for more information on how you can be involved!
