FHI sees personal finances and economics as a part of the whole person. We know that every individual is navigating unique challenges and therefore requires education and training that is relevant and applicable to that person in their current situation.


FHI develops, delivers and promotes Person-Centered Financial Education for people experiencing economic stress and the organizations that serve them so that everyone can improve their financial health.


Person-Centered Financial Education will become the standard approach in the field of financial education and literacy across the country because it is a more effective way of delivering financial education for people experiencing economic stress and professionals trained in this approach are more effective in helping their participants improve their economic situations.

As a result, more people will reduce their financial stress and economic trauma and be comfortable engaging with the financial and economic system.
