Older adults are vulnerable to a number of financial threats, including fraud, identity theft and financial elder abuse. Combine these threats with the challenges of living on a fixed income and it becomes clear that financial and computer literacy is a necessary skill for seniors. Financial Fitness for Seniors helps older adults gain an understanding of financial literacy, recognize risk factors for exploitation and learn to make more informed financial judgments. For many disadvantaged, older adults, the path to economic security begins with basic money management. Learning how to budget, avoid scams, navigate the internet, apply for benefits and manage prepaid debit cards can help them stay secure and independent longer.

NPHS is a HUD Approved Housing Counseling Agency. Workshops for Financial Fitness for Seniors are taught in English and Spanish in a classroom setting by experienced housing professionals who are certified by the NeighborWorks® Center for Homebuyer Education and Counseling. Seniors will utilize the NPHS Technology Center which is dedicated to provide disadvantaged residents with access to information technology and the training to use it.
