The Fremont Family Resource Center (FRC), United Way of the Bay Area, and other Bay Area organizations are pleased to announce the Grand Opening of SparkPoint financial services on Thursday, September 13. The public is invited.
Created by United Way of the Bay Area, SparkPoint Centers are one-stop, financial education centers that offer a full range of services to help families and individuals achieve long-term financial stability. SparkPoint Fremont FRC is the tenth SparkPoint Center and the only one in southern Alameda County.
"With one in five Bay Area families struggling to make ends meet, expanding SparkPoint is an important part of United Way's efforts to cut poverty in half in the Bay Area by 2020," said Anne Wilson, CEO of United Way of the Bay Area.
SparkPoint Centers bring together some of the area's most effective programs through personal financial coaching and bundled services to deliver integrated services as a single entity. Every SparkPoint client is paired with a financial coach who helps them create a step-by-step plan to achieve their personal financial goals such as getting out of debt, going back to school or finding a job.
Free services help South County residents achieve long-term economic success including:
* Financial Education and Coaching
* Credit and Debt Management
* Income Tax Preparation
* Individual Development Accounts (matched savings program)
* Peer Lending Program
