Who: Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCCS)
What: Invites the Niagara Falls community to attend a Stakeholders Meeting to discuss a new economic empowerment initiative in Niagara Falls
When: Wednesday, September 18th, 9:00 am—12 Noon
Where: Family & Children’s Services Building, 1522 Main Street, Niagara Falls, 14305
Why: As everyone can agree, persistent poverty across Niagara County is a major concern. While there is no magic cure, CCCS Buffalo wants to create lasting economic change, based on successful programming in Erie County, and will launch the Niagara County Financial Literacy Coalition in November 2013. The Niagara County Financial Literacy Coalition will focus on the financial stability of low-income families--increasing access to tax credits, refunds, and needed income supports; improving financial literacy, and providing opportunities for homeownership, education, or other asset building.
Niagara Falls Community members are encouraged to attend this session. Please contact Tara at 712-2062 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space.
Collaboration and synergistic partnerships play a key a role in this project. We plan to fully engage our partners in building the Coalition, and have received an overwhelmingly positive response from all of them. To date, we have forged partnerships with the following Niagara County providers:
• United Way of Greater Niagara
• Family & Children’s Service of Niagara
• The Red Cross
• Literacy Volunteers
• NCAP (Niagara Community Action Program)
