Head Start teacher takes UCCE finance and savings lessons to heart

Sharon, a family service worker with the Head Start program in Ridgecrest, has been trained to teach UCCE’s “Making Every Dollar Count” curriculum to her client families. Recognizing the good sense found in the lessons she was teaching, she applied those same ideas to her own financial life and was able to build up $2,000 in a savings account. Later, a fire broke out at the center where she worked and she found herself out of work for two months while the center was being repaired. Sharon credits her UCCE financial literacy training with saving her family from financial hardship during that time.
