Increasing Resilience through Financial Wellbeing


By Joshua Baker

Fitting within Lloyd EcoDistricts Residential Resilience initiatives, we continuously seek out innovative ways to help everyone in our community. Early this year, we launched an educational series around financial wellness. At Home Forward’s The Louisa Flowers multifamily apartments, we partnered with financial experts from KeyBank to provide financial wellness workshops for residents.

From topics like debt consolidation and sustainable, long-term investing options, our financial expert partners at KeyBank offered residents a means to gain financial wellness resources and education that will last a lifetime. At the two workshops held in February and March 2024, over 20 residents attended and attentively engaged in financial wellness education.

Thank you to the Home Forward team for having us and KeyBank for being great partners. If you have a building or group in the Lloyd area that may benefit from a financial wellness workshop, let us know.

Why it matters: As the saying goes: “You can give somebody a fish and they will eat for a day– or, you can teach somebody to fish and they can eat for a lifetime”. We think the same goes for financial wellness and building resilience across the Lloyd EcoDistrict.
