Financial Literacy

Program Description

Financial literacy is one of CAASNM’s services to help New Mexicans achieve self-sufficiency. This training program relies on financial coaching techniques that help individuals learn about personal finance strategies such as savings, budgeting, planning for retirement, paying for college, how to start a business, how to find and keep a job, building and repairing credit, etc.
Our curriculum is client-driven so other courses can be created upon community needs.

Annie is a participant in CAASNM’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) from Truth or Consequences.  She is a grandmother helping raise grandchildren and she also cares for her sick mother. Annie is very thankful for this program because it allows her to care for her mom and grandchildren. She has three grandchildren who live with her and she takes care of four grandchildren that don’t. The program reimburses her for nutritious food for all seven children in addition to her disabled mom.

Annie is a very special lady and has gone through a lot. She has been doing childcare for a long time. She cared for her sick father and then her husband before they passed away and now she is caring for her mom. She took a part time job at night with Walmart in-order to buy Christmas presents for of all her grandchildren, her brother and 18 year old grandson who stays to look after the children and Annie’s mom while she is working. She is a true success because she perseveres with all of her hardships, but with a little help from CAASNM.
