Testimonials

“I have taken the FLP through Pathways.  I believe that this program was the best thing in my life.  I learned a lot of interesting things and it helped me budget my money.  The instructor Alison made the class very interesting and fun to be in.”

“The most important thing I learned from FLP is the difference between a ‘want’ and a ‘need’.  I learned how to prioritize and budget my money much more efficiently and managed to cut my debt drastically in six months.”

“I was very excited to learn new things about how to save money & how to stretch a dollar. I enjoyed making budgets and shopping wisely. The program was excellent! I learned many new things and will enjoy putting them to use in the future. Thank you.”
