We expect to begin offering on-line and virtual financial education seminars by mid-April and apologize for any inconvenience.

The Financial Empowerment Center provides services to help individuals and families in Prince William County advance on a path toward financial stability. Services include financial coaching, small business coaching, financial workshops, and free tax preparation.
