“I am forever grateful that the Financial Clinic didn’t give up on me when I gave up on myself!!


Two years ago I walked into the Clinic asking for help with cleaning up my credit. I walked out with a personalized Action Plan!


Failure was NOT an option with my Financial Coach. She supported me through every road block that tried to interfere with my goal to become a homeowner. Riverworks was a one stop shop for preparing and connecting me to a trusted lenders, realtors and grants.


I now own a home double the size of my rental, and pay less as a homeowner than as a renter. The home is mine, and the keystone of wealth for me and my family!”
