  • developing a savings plan and protecting your assets

These workshops are provided to community groups, civic organizations and faith-based organizations, free of charge. If you are interested in learning how your organization can partner with the Detroit Financial Security Leadership Team to plan a workshop, call the AARP Detroit area resource center at 313-832-6846 or email aarpinfodetroit@gmail.com and ask to have a member of the Financial Security Team contact you.
