Financial Empowerment Centers
In early 2013, the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County partnered with the City of San Antonio and Family Service Association to deliver a new financial fitness program model to all San Antonio and Bexar County residents regardless of income. The Financial Empowerment Center (FEC) is a $3 million grant awarded to the City of San Antonio funded through Bloomberg Philanthropies and Living Cities’ Cities for Financial Empowerment (CFE) Fund.
Certified financial counselors provide free one-on-one counseling sessions guiding residents on how to stabilize their finances, rebuild credit, reduce debt and build new savings the confidential sessions. Counselors will also link residents to a multitude of existing services and community resources available to assist them.
