In our community, as many as 260,000 residents are unbanked. Worse off are the more than
12,000 area residents who don’t have a home, or are at risk of homelessness on any given day.
Our mission for the Financial Empowerment Center at the Greater Washington Urban League is to place our constituents on viable pathways to economic progress and facilitate community and generational wealth accumulation. Our duty is to put participants in the driver’s seat with the skills and mindfulness they need to make critical changes and choices in order to build sound financial futures.
