The San Diego Financial Literacy Center (SDFLC) is a comprehensive personal financial education platform that focuses on the overall financial health of its constituents; which include members of the military (active, retired and veteran), youth (K-12 and college], and low-moderate income families. The SDFLC uses a macro approach towards transforming people’s financial behavior in a way that encourages them to make a long-term commitment to increasing income, decreasing expenses, and acquiring assets. The SDFLC provides services across these key areas: financial literacy, debt management, budgeting and credit counseling.

All of these services are provided to clients in a bundled fashion to reinforce one another and to forge a multi-faceted approach to overall financial fitness.
How San Diego Financial Literacy Center serves the military-connected community:
Boost for Our Heroes is a financial assistance and education program that benefits military members and their families. This program provides a variety of workshops, outreach efforts, and one-on-one consultations to help men and women experiencing a financial hardship become financially stable. Educational programs focused mainly on six topics in 2018: development of a savings plan, fundamentals of buying a house and a car, mastering the military transition, understanding and utilizing credit, budget and debt management. Providing these complimentary educational platforms has made a great impact on the military community in San Diego and has afforded DebtWave the opportunity to develop program features that will focus on youth education for military children as well as a program focused on financial education for military spouses. In 2018, SDFLC provided $12,000 in financial hardship awards to military members and their families. This brings the total given in the life of the program to $64,000.00.
