Volume 1: Issue 2
The Financial Services Resource Guide is a part of Making Connections Milwaukee’s
(MCM) collaborative efforts to enhance consumer knowledge. The Guide allows
consumers to choose appropriate resources that fit their individual needs. All resources
listed in the Guide can be used to build personal wealth. The Guide includes sources
of information on financial education, saving and investing, budgets, and debt
management. This Guide is not intended to be all-inclusive; there are many additional
national, state and local resources that can provide additional information on building
wealth for a more secure financial future.
As the lead Asset Building Strategy Partner for MCM, Urban Economic Development
Association of Wisconsin (UEDA) is committed to bridging the gap between residents
and the variety of services currently available in our market. With generous support
from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, this collaboration serves a population of 30,000
in the Making Connections Milwaukee area. Boundaries for the area are 47th
Street to 24th Street and Center Street to Highland Boulevard and consists of seven
neighborhoods: Metcalfe Park, Midtown, Cold Spring Park, Washington Park, Walnut
Hill, Sherman Park and Martin Drive.
The Financial Services Resource Guide is sponsored by CHASE Bank.
