Dealing with financial hardships can cause major stress and anxiety. Whether it’s a short-term situation or an ongoing reality, it weighs you down and impacts your every day.
Through Wisconsin Promise, we talk to many families about their money – we talk about goals and challenges. We talk about what is most important to you and your family right now and looking ahead into the future.
The goal is for families to have more confidence in managing their money. No matter what your goal is – increasing your income, being able to afford a better place to live, decreasing credit-card debt, or simply saving money for a rainy day, there are strategies and steps to help get you to where you want to be.
The hope is those stressful financial times become less of a day to day struggle and more of an opportunity to move in a direction that allows you to meet the needs of you and your family.
