The Save Up program continues to educate families on how to make better financial decisions in preparation for asset purchase. Twelve (12) new participants completed the intensive six-week financial literacy course. During that time, a Save Up participant, Sheena Harper, purchased her first home. RISE coordinated a ribbon-cutting to formally welcome Harper and her son to her home, along with Save Up funders, Kemmons Wilson Family Foundation. Harper entered the program in 2010. Her home purchase is one of many asset purchases that total $5.9 M to help better our families and community.
