You and Riverworks have been a major factor in my financial "solutions". I am grateful to have met you all's acquaintance. God don't just allow us to cross path for no reason. You all have been a blessing in my life and helped "raised" me (sort of speak). When I met you all, I was still transitioning from "prison" to the "workforce" and with God. Though it had been about 15 years from when I was incarcerated and 5 years into my spiritual walk, when I met you all, God allowed you all to come into my life at the RIGHT time. I am very grateful, thankful and honored.
I personally would like to extend my gratitude to all of you at Riverworks and to your volunteers. I know there are countless “unaccounted for hours” volunteers and staff like yourself have selflessly sacrificed to provide services to our taxpayers. That you continued to provide services during a pandemic gives testament to your dedication and commitment. Thank you. The Internal Revenue Service couldn’t sustain the VITA/TCE programs without partners like you.
“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!”
