Knowing what your credit score is and what is used to develop that score is important in each person’s credit history, especially when applying for a loan to purchase a big-ticket item, such as a house or car.
Sarah Hooks, Family Services Director at Habitat for Humanity, will provide the information you need to track and maintain your credit score. Her presentation draws on personal experience as an affiliate loan originator and educator, and ties in with the Habitat for Humanity belief that education is a key component to success in home-ownership and in life. Habitat works to provide easy-to-understand information about credit and underwriting.
Fiscal Fitness Series
The monthly series of five workshops is being offered again from September 2017 through February 2018, to help participants realize the power they have to make a difference in their family’s finances. (The first series took place from April through August 2017.)
These presentations are standalone sessions so that the public can enjoy one or as many topics as interest and time permit. Sessions will be on the second Monday of each month, at 6:30 p.m., in Dorothy Herron Room A at the Blount County Public Library.
Open to the public, this program is hosted by Blount County Public Library located at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville. For further information about library programs or services, call the library at (865) 982-0981 or visit the Web site at www.blounttn.org/197.
