Maintain Financial Wellness With

O.N.F.I.Y.A.'s Financial Literacy Program

Financial Literacy is one of the least talked about tools to help families towards financial freedom. It is our duty to introduce mentees and their families to Financial Education by teaching them the basics of income, budgeting, spending, borrowing, and maintaining credit. In return, a mentee will gain knowledge on how to become self-sufficient. By taking advantage of the Financial Literacy Program you will be able to move out on your own, utilize different ways to pay for college and implement resources to purchase a vehicle.

From Our Mentors

O.N.F.I.Y.A. is a wonderful team and I am happy to be with this program. I personally have witnessed them touch and help so many young people and families. The program is designed to slowly build relationships with your mentee. Originally, I had a hard time connecting and completing sessions with my mentee but after a couple of months, we had a complete turnaround. I trusted the process by following and teaching the monthly topics, attending/showing up for the mentee, and being there for her even when she struggled to connect. Mrs. Harris and Jessica have been great in assisting me every step of the way which helped me to feel like my efforts were noticed. Now my mentee and I have a great relationship and she even wants me to continue being her mentee after the program! I truly wouldn’t want to be a part of any other program!
