Resources for Parents

Students with a college savings account are four times more likely to finish college than students without college savings.  With college tuition rising at alarming rates, it's critical for families to start thinking about and saving for college early.  Investing in students and educating them about their college savings account from an early age will prepare them to know college is attainable.

In every family, students are only half of the family unit. It's important that every household looks at their future as a unit. At the City of Lansing, we encourage neighbors and parents alike to visit the Financial Empowerment Center. There you can sit down, one-on-one, with a financial counselor who will do a financial health assessment with you to 1) reduce your debt, 2) boost your savings, and 3) increase your credit score.
