It's expensive to be poor. And it's compounded by a struggling economy.

Great story in the CT Mirror about CAHS' new Bank On program, on how financial literacy can help alleviate the high cost of poverty.

Bank On offers classes that teach students and adults the basics of finance and credit so they can avoid the common pitfalls of predatory lending and expensive financial tools and save money. As part of the process, CAHS will evaluate services for effectiveness and make any needed changes.
