Financial Peace University

Education to ensure the financial security & stability of our partnering families

Habitat for Humanity of Gaston County requires all of our homeowners to participate in the Financial Peace University course to ensure the financial security and stability of our partnering families.

Financial Peace University began nearly 20 years ago and is, essentially, a plan for your money. Financial Peace University offers a nine-week course in which the best way of handling money is taught. This course presents biblical and practical steps to get from where you are, to where you’ve always dreamed you could be. The money handling plan that is taught in this 14-16 week course will teach you to rid your life of debt, manage your money, and how to spend and save your money wisely!

Prospective homeowners also learn simple interior and exterior home maintenance, how to be a good neighbor and how to teach children how to handle money. Other areas addressed in Homeowner Education include:

  • Wills and Powers of Attorney
  • The Habitat Mortgage
  • Taxes
