TRP was never just about bricks and mortars: it was about creating healthy communities. And healthy communities need to be financially healthy and stable.
That’s why our Financial Wellness department works to promote the financial wellness of our communities by offering workshops and one-on-one financial counseling services.
Financial Wellness provides three types of core services:
Financial Wellness - Our financial counselors and professionals provide free bilingual workshops on topics such as improving credit, managing money and assets, creating a budget, decreasing debt, and more. One-on-one counseling is also available. Mujer Avanzando, offered by TRP in partnership with Instituto del Progreso Latino and Mujeres Latinas en Acción, is one of many Financial Wellness programs available.
Home Purchase - Healthy communities need homeowners who are ready to invest in their neighborhood. TRP’s new HomeSmart program helps people achieve the dream of home ownership by following a careful action plan that begins with financial stability, continues through the mortgage application process, and ends with the purchase of a home.
Foreclosure Prevention - With the recent foreclosure crisis affecting thousands in the Chicagoland area, TRP now provide free foreclosure prevention counseling to help struggling homeowners understand their rights and options.
All of these services are free of charge and open to the general public.
