On behalf of Greater Peoria LISC, we would like to announce the opening of the new Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) located at the METEC Housing Counseling Resource Center (2605 West Krause Avenue) in Peoria, IL. The grand opening of the FOC took place on the 30th of September.
LISC’s nationwide network of over 70 Financial Opportunity Centers have helped over 20,000 individuals receive services. Greater Peoria LISC, with support from State Farm, is excited to establish this FOC in order to help low and moderate income families build assets and attain financial stability and self-sufficiency. By providing an integrated set of three core services – employment services, financial education and coaching, and access to income supports – we hope clients will increase their monthly net income, decrease their expenses, build credit, and acquire assets. FOC services can help individuals and families access income boosting supports like utility assistance or children’s health insurance; secure a job; and access budgeting assistance and credit counseling.
Thank you for your continued support of LISC’s community development efforts.
