There is no magic wand to help others with financial problems, but this fall Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Wright and Hamilton Counties will offer training on a new financial empowerment toolkit. “Your Money, Your Goals” offers practical tools and information that social workers and others can use as needed when clients have financial questions or concerns.  ISU Extension’s ten-hour training includes two in-person sessions plus one two-hour webinar. 


The training will be held from 8:30-12:30 on Tuesday, Nov 15 and Wednesday, Dec 7 at Hamilton County Extension Office (311 Bank Street in Webster City), with a webinar from 8:30-10:30 on Wednesday November 30.  The normal registration fee of $75 has been reduced to $30, thanks to support from Wright and Hamilton County Extension Councils.  The $30 fee includes a full copy of the toolkit.
