Live Webinar: National Financial Literacy Month: Operation Hope & Emergency Financial Preparedness - April 1st at 2 p.m. EDT

Date and Time: Thursday, April 1st @ 2 PM EDT

Presenter: Jason Yansey, Operations Manager for HOPE Coalition America

To help kick off April as National Financial Literacy Month, the FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Division is excited to highlight, Operation HOPE, a Citizen Corps Affiliate. Operation HOPE, America's leading nonprofit social investment banking and financial literacy empowerment organization, has developed a number of initiatives to provide financial literacy, financial preparedness, and financial emergency support. HOPE Coalition America provides free pre-disaster financial preparedness seminars and foreclosure prevention workshops for both individuals and organizations, and provides financial experts to assist communities after a disaster strikes. The most effective way to recover from an emergency or a disaster is pre-disaster Emergency Financial Literacy and Preparation.  After a disaster, financial issues affect more people than personal injury or direct property damage. Operation HOPE and their HOPE Coalition America serves as a resource network of companies, including banking, financial services, and insurance as well as government, social service and emergency relief organizations that mobilize to respond to disasters. This webinar will highlight ways to work with Operation HOPE and resources available to engage community members in steps they should take to be financially prepared in the face of disaster. Some of the resources which will be highlighted include the Emergency Financial First Aid Kit (EFFAK) and the Personal Disaster Preparedness Guide (PDPG). Jason Yancey, Operations Manager from Operation HOPE, will discuss HOPE Coalition America and the importance of financial literacy to disaster preparedness.
