Financial Education Partnership-Washington County (FEP-WC) was created in 2015 as a first of its kind collaboration to provide free financial education, services and supports to Washington County residents. The target group includes a broad spectrum of clients within the community including low-moderate income households, unemployed, homeless, and individuals in recovery from substance abuse. Funded by a grant from the United Way of Washington County, our current partners include: Horizon Goodwill Industries, Interfaith Service Coalition and Lasting Change Recovery Solutions for Women (formerly W House).
As the lead agency for the collaborative, Reach facilitates financial education classes at several locations throughout the community such as Wells House, Washington County Sheriff’s office Adult Day Reporting Center, the Mental Health Center and our own Cold Weather Shelter. Additionally, classes are offered online monthly FREE of charge to all Washington County residents. Our curriculum is offered through partnership with the CASH Campaign of MD. Other services the collaborative offers includes: individualized coaching/follow-up services, community referrals, and workforce development opportunities to help participants achieve financial mobility.
