Learning how to budget finances and improve credit scores can often be a daunting task for many people.

However, LOU-Home Inc. is offering a free seminar on Saturday to help people become more knowledgeable about their finances.

The Credit and Financial Goal Setting Workshop will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday in the Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library auditorium with an introduction to budgeting and improving credit scores. Information about the new affordable, workforce housing development Belle Rivers will also be available.

Belle Rivers, expected to be completed this summer, will consist of 48 units as attached duplexes on 9 acres off Slack and Vaughn Roads, just east of the Kroger shopping center.

After the seminar, those attending will have a chance to meet one-on-one with financial counselors, NeKici Ruffin or Forrest Jenkins for individual counseling.

“This workshop is beneficial for anyone who is interested in becoming more knowledgeable about their finances,” said Ruffin.

Volunteers will be available to read to children during the workshop.

The next workshop will be in May and will focus on the landlord-tenant relationship in Mississippi, planning to transition out of rental property and effective communications with landlords.

This workshop is partially funded with the support of United Way of Oxford & Lafayette County.

Contact nekici@louhome.org or 662-380-3921 for more information or to discuss potential ADA accommodations.
