Our goal is simple: To create learning success stories through financial literacy and homeownership, one individual and family at a time.
Teach Them To Fish™ is a financial literacy program made up of an introductory seminar and 7 weeks of classes that follow. Through personalized instruction, one-on-one coaching and mentoring, enrollees are offered the most efficient and effective homeownership learning process available. And it is absolutely free, with no obligations. Teach Them To Fish uses Freddie Mac's CreditSmart® as its primary text. The "Power of Positive Thinking" and "The Richest Man in Babylon" are also required readings for the course.

A COVID-19 Message from our Founder-
As you shelter in place, let it be a learning experience for you and your family. Discuss and master the significants of Needs, Wants, and Desires! Use the Pandemic situation, and personalize it. These realities and emotions are the building blocks for financial independence and a pathway for your future. When you master your emotions, you will be ready to set achievable goals and create realistic spending plans. (To our TTTF students, use this time to complete the work sheets in Modules #2 and #3). Financial literacy is not molecular science, it’s basic foundation comprises discipline (based upon proven principles), numbers and common sense.
