United Way of Forsyth County expands financial coaching with new grant
SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE
A $200j000 grant to the United Way of
Forsyth County will help low- and moder
ate-income residents receive financial
coaching and enhance their financial skills.
The grant is part of the Financial
Capability Network (FCN), a partnership
between United Way and Wells Fargo.
Established in 2012 with a five-year,
$5 million Wells Fargo grant, the network
aims to strengthen the financial stability of
individuals and families in Forsyth County
and seven other communities- across the
country. Piloting strategies like coaching,
financial wellness classes and budget
workshops, the Financial Capability
Network's goal is to better equip individu
als and families to make financial deci
sions that will improve short-term cash
flow and long-term financial stability.
In Forsyth County, the FCN program is
called The Point, a mobile financial stabil
ity unit that brings services directly to res
idents, schools, neighborhoods, communi
ty events and places of worship.
The Point is operated by Financial
Pathways of the Piedmont Mid managed in
conjunction with GoodwUl Industries of
Northwest N.C. an<T"Experiment in Self
Reliance, all long-time partners of the
United Way. The vehicle is outfitted with
computers, internet access and the soft
ware needed to provide clients with an
array of services, including: credit and
debit counseling, financial education, free
tax preparation, job training and prepara
tion, information about banking services,
assistance with financial aid applications
for students applying to college, and asset
building services that focus on homeown
Upcoming local events where The
Point will be present include:
?July 18 - Stomp Out Poverty event, 8
a.m.-noon at Experiment in Self Reliance
*July 25 - Community Day event,
noon-4 p.m. at the City of WS / W.C. Sims
?Aug 15 - Alpha Kappa Alpha
Sorority Inc. Community Day, 1 p.m.-5
p.m. at Carver High School
"The beauty of this program is that The
Point brings these much needed financial
coaching services directly to the people
who need them most. The schedule of
appearances is developed based on
requests from residents and organizations
in the community," said Cindy Gordineer,
president and CEO of United Way of
More than 19300 people across the
United States have received financial
coaching during the first three years of the
United Way/Wells Fargo partnership. Of
those, more than 12,000 people have set
long-term financial goals, 4,775 have
increased their income and more than
2,740 have increased their savings.
The next two years of the grant will
focus primarily on financial coaching.
"We believe that financial coaching is
one of the most effective strategies in help
ing to change the financial situation of
individuals and families" said Peggy
Reingold, community relations, Wells
Fargo. "This kind of ongoing support will
empower families as they begin to get on
more solid financial ground and stay there.
As the number of individuals involved
grows, so does the overall impact on our
communities and our economy."
In addition to Winston-Salem, the
Financial Capability Network is underway
in Jacksonville, FL; Miami; Atlanta; Des
Moines, IA; Houston; Phoenix; and San

or to justify their actions but to open their
eyes to their sins. The reference of Jacob
and Israel here means Judah. The political
leaders and the priests who paid for the
"good words" from the prophets are cited
for their deeds. Both sets of leaders are
responsible for caring for the people polit
ically and spiritually have their sights on
worldly things (greed and power) and care
nothing for the people in the kingdom!
Verse eleven is where the rubber meets the
road, the leaders take bribes, the priests
teach for pay, and the prophets get money
to say what the leadership wants to hear!
They are condemned for their arrogance
and the nonexistence of justice. Micah tells
them that judgment is coming; Judah
(Zion) will be destroyed like a harvested
field; Jerusalem will be a pile of dirt and
rubble; and the temple hill (where the

Life's Application: God doesn't like
corruption no matter who the guilty party
is. Micah condemns the leadership of
Judah but the commoners who are mim
icking them are guilty as well! In God's
own time, He cleans house. Political lead
ers today, a lot of them continue to play
games with the masses of people gov
erned. They pass laws to justify their
actions and blame the poor for their plight.
They become the "fat cats" at the expense
of the poor who they are to protect. The
priests and the prophets are so concerned
about their wealth that they would do and
say anything so long as their pockets are
filled. Micah and the other prophets tell us
. over and over that God doesn't tolerate
i corruption. He sends His messengers to
1 warn us but in His time, judgment will <
