She Speaks! Programs

She Speaks! HBA (Home Buyers Academy) - Partnered with Operation HOPE and Sun Trust Bank

Home-Buyers Academy (HBA) will assist first time home buyers through the entire process of purchasing a home. We have formed a solid partnership with the National Non-Profit Organization Operation Hope, which will help each enrollee with repairing and restoring their personal credit to a 700 or better. We have also partnered with SunTrust Bank who teach our enrollees financial and banking literacy and who work hard to get them a loan at the completion of the program. Finally we have several realtors on hand to work personally with our members to educate them on the home-buying process, then when they are ready, we take the home-buying journey with them, serving more as advocates than as agents. We ensure that the client gets the best home for their money and also work diligently to match clients with down payment assistance programs to ease financial burdens.

She Speaks! Empowerment Workshops (Professional & Personal Development)

SSIFW will provide dynamic monthly workshops for our members in the areas of professional and career development, financial literacy, parenting, mental and spiritual wellness, and much more. These workshops are usually held on Saturdays and  are free to members and a small admission for non-members.
