Get Ahead with LCCAA This Spring

posted 4/22/19 -- Tap into your inner power this spring by joining LCCAA’s Getting Ahead Program.

In this group setting, participants are truly empowered to become financially secure and reach their personal goals. The program provides time and space for men and women to delve deeply into their lives to find strengths and identify their resources. It helps them face what advocates call “the tyranny of the moment” and avoid making emotional decisions.

As Client Services Educator Amy Steele puts it: “Getting ahead gets you to the point where you can say: ‘Wait. Let’s step back. Let’s take a breath.’ It allows you to see the bigger picture.”

Steele facilitates the class which meets twice a week for eight weeks. In a kitchen-table style setting, participants examine and eliminate their individual barriers to self-sufficiency.

Orientation is scheduled for May 2 at 1:30 p.m. Class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursday from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. beginning May 7.

Steele will discuss the upcoming class and overall program in a presentation to the staff of Lorain County Community College on April 17.

If your organization would like to schedule a presentation or you are ready to sign up for the class, contact Steele at 440-204-3121 or
