Latest Edition of Financial Education Booklet Helps Young Adults Across the Board

The hard work has paid off and the third edition of our financial education booklet, Cents and Sensibility, is finally here. In this latest edition we've changed the title from Cents and Sensibility: A guide to money management for people with disabilities, to Cents and Sensibility: A guide to money management. While we originally wrote this booklet to respond to a need in the disability community, we've learned from our pilot programs that everyone can benefit from this information. This booklet will give you the tools you need to make informed decisions about your financial future. It will teach you how to manage your money so your money doesn't manage you!
