Financial Counseling at the Northern Virginia Housing Expo

April 11th, 2018


We had another great day at the Northern Virginia Housing Expo in Alexandria on Saturday, March 24! Six Financial Literacy volunteers from Britepaths and the Financial Empowerment Center at South County provided free Financial Counseling sessions for 22 Expo attendees, and we gave out information about our Financial Literacy offerings to many, many more who dropped by our table.

We received a lot of positive feedback about the counseling sessions. One client came to the Britepaths table and spoke to our Financial Literacy Manager Carole Rogers after her coaching session and asked if she could be part of our Financial Mentoring Program. She followed up with Carole by email and is currently working to meet the requirements to be matched with a Mentor.

We are grateful to the Northern Virginia Housing Expo organizers for making our Financial Counseling sessions a part of their event each March.
