Financial literacy is the possession of knowledge and understanding of financial matters. Financial literacy often entails the knowledge that leads to people making sound decisons to certain personal areas such as the purchase and sale of real estate, insurance, savings, investing, tax planning, retirement planning, the purchase and use of credit cards, purchasing an automobile or other personal assets.
It includes understanding the value of credit and a healthy credit report, the rights of a consumer and the time value of money.

Celebration Christian Services is part of the nonprofit support network of Montgomery County. This is part of CCSPA Antipoverty Indirect Services. CCSPA understands the need to partner with like-minded social services agencies in the Delaware Valley.. The goal is to unite and refer people in need to our partners who are able to assist. In like manner when CCSPA is the direct provider, we receive referrals from our partners as well. Our relationships with shelters, our bread of Life Outreach and other activities of our volunteer network make all of this possible.
