The Chicago Urban League has been a valuable partner in this effort and we are committed to continue our support of the communities they serve.”
The event will offer educational seminars and a chance for private financial coaching, as well as a resource fair where attendees will gain important insights including:
- Steps to a better credit score
- Effective budget planning

In addition, participants who visit every booth at the resource fair are eligible for raffle prizes. Refreshments will be provided.
Margaret Wooten, Senior Director of Housing and Financial Empowerment for the Chicago Urban League, added, “This forum allows attendees to ask questions and learn about the key steps to homeownership. We are very excited about this partnership to get more African Americans and other people of color financially fit and ready for homeownership. Purchasing a home is an important part of the foundation to create personal financial strength and we are excited to open our doors to educate and help the people we serve establish a legacy of financial empowerment that will last for generations.”
