Liberty Bank, along with several partners, recently launched a series of free virtual workshops to assist individuals, families and small businesses experiencing financial hardships due to setbacks caused by COVID-19. The webinars are currently scheduled throughout June and July with plans to add more in the near future.
Events include: Liberty's Academy for Small Business, first-time home buyer lunch and learn courses, and workshops focused on understanding credit reporting and money values. Liberty Bank is partnering with organizations across the state to help neighbors in every corner. Current partners are: CRT Women’s Empowerment Center; Connecticut State Library and several of its members; East Hartford Connects; Habitat for Humanity (various chapters in Connecticut); Middlesex/New Haven Association of Realtors; Spanish American Merchants Association, Thames Valley Council for Community Action; Tri-County Board of Realtors, Valley Association of Realtors; Greater Hartford Association of Realtors; SCORE (various chapters throughout the State) and the Women's Business Development Center.
“Since 1825, Liberty Bank has been dedicated to serving our communities and providing financial resources and tools that help families and small businesses succeed,” said Glenn Davis, VP, Community Development/CRA Officer. “As the backlash of the pandemic continues to unfold, we are reinforcing our 195-year dedication to economic development, sustainability and to helping Connecticut grow. Today, more than ever before, we are committed to assisting our neighbors who are struggling during these uncertain times and to helping with crisis recovery through teamwork, education and financial guidance.”
Following discussions with local community members and organizations, Liberty Bank’s Community Development team and its partners realized the need for virtual financial workshops as families and small business owners were unsure where to turn for assistance. In addition to this series, Liberty provides simple, yet sound expertise through its Online Learning Center which provides money management advice, easy-to-use financial tools and more through educational videos.
