James Jones, Housing Manager for GROWTH, commented, “Empowering your mind with knowledge is the greatest investment in personal growth. Financial literacy is the key that unlocks the door to economic empowerment. It’s not just about understanding numbers; it’s about mastering the language of wealth and making informed choices that pave the way to financial freedom.” 

As a HUD-approved housing counseling agency, GROWTH plays a crucial role in helping clients increase their financial literacy, understand credit, create budgets, purchase homes, and plan. GROWTH launched a series of financial education videos that highlights its HUD-approved housing counseling services and what sets HUD-approved housing counseling agencies apart. The videos are available in both English and in Spanish.
