2017 Financial Education Summit Testimonial: 

Hello, My name is Diana Mason, I am a Community Resource Specialist at Community Assistance Network, CAN and going to the MD CASH Campaign Summit helped me to connect with other providers across the state and allowed me to gain more insight on what challenges and solutions other financial professionals were encountering at their agency.

The Summit gave me ideas on financial components that can be implemented within our CAN Outreach Services department's educational workshops and one-on-one budget counseling sessions, to better help the low-income population we serve.

In the CAN Outreach Services department our focus is on healthy choices and helping folks understand the reasoning behind their financial decisions to help them get financially self-sufficient.

Money Habitudes was introduced to me during a FSP remote computer and training call and I was so glad a representative from the company was there with some of their products! Thankfully I had the opportunity to buy some cards and am anticipating on using them with the next one-on-on budget session to observe how effective they are.

"Information is not valuable if it's not shared"

I believe in order to help others move towards self-sufficiency it is our duty to provide practical and realistic applications and resources that meet those we serve where they are now to get them where they aspire to be, I thank the MD CASH Campaign for coordinating the Financial Summit and for all of its other financial tools that help their community partners do just that!
