Through financial education, Whatcom Dream empowers individuals to achieve a higher quality of life.

Financial Empowerment is so much more than learning about money.

To be sure, budgeting, debt management and maintaining a good credit rating are skills necessary for navigating today's world. But, Financial Empowerment is about YOU. Your dreams and goals. You do have the power to affect your future.


Our classes can show you how  to maintain fiscal stability and avoid pitfalls, while taking into consideration your particular dreams and aspirations for a better quality of life for you and your loved ones. Take this opportunity to allow yourself to become equipped and empowered to deal with your finances in a whole new way.
