Corazón conducts financial literacy workshops throughout the year helping residents start a savings plan, open a bank account, understand the American financial system, and how to build credit. For those we serve, it is critical to understand the difference between debit and credit cards, learn how to write a check, and the importance of developing a strong foundation in financial literacy. This programming covers a variety of topics for an adult audience and is often paired with financial incentives from partner organizations. Throughout tax season, we host a free tax preparation site as part of the Earn It! Keep It! Save It! Coalition in partnership with United Way of the Wine Country. Our trained staff of volunteer tax preparers assist low income residents with their tax preparation on-site at the Corazón Resource Center.
