SERCAP's Housing Counseling Program Hosts Holiday Focused Workshops in Roanoke, Virginia!

Since becoming a HUD approved Local Housing Counseling Agency (LHCA) in 2012, SERCAP’s Housing Counseling Program has served hundreds of clients and provided a variety of Housing Counseling and Financial Literacy services. This year SERCAP is working to create and execute a series of Holiday focused budgeting and scam prevention workshops.

Thus far this fall, SERCAP’s Housing Counseling Program has hosted two (2) of these Holiday focused Workshops, one on October 16, 2019 at the agency’s headquarters and one on October 23, 2019 at St. John’s Episcopal Church, both in downtown Roanoke, VA. These Holiday Workshops taught participants how to create a holiday spending plan that’s already within one’s current budget, and how to protect oneself and avoid scams that are especially prevalent during the holiday season.

Without SERCAP’s Housing Counseling Program, and other similar services, many low-income individuals and communities would be forced to go without access to Financial Literacy Education, and such necessities as safe and affordable housing, indoor plumbing, reliable access to clean drinking water, water/wastewater infrastructure solutions, and other community development and infrastructure needs. It is important to remember that even in the US in the 21st Century; there are those who do not have reliable access to clean, safe drinking water, environmentally sound septic facilities, and affordable housing. In order to help SERCAP continue to provide assistance to both the individuals and communities in need, please consider making a donation to SERCAP’s Water Life! Fund!
