Financial Empowerment Center

The Aurora FEC is managed by the City of Aurora and partnered with The Neighbor Project, to provide individualized, culturally and linguistically sensitive financial counseling to individuals and families who self-identify or are referred to the center through a network of area social service providers. The Aurora FEC aims to bring individuals and families out of poverty and improve the financial stability of low- and moderate-income people throughout the city, supporting their economic growth, and leading to more equitable outcomes for the entire community.
