Financial Emergency KitCOVID-19 and its impact has left many families facing serious financial hardships, and the end still appears to be nowhere in sight. Many families have lost their jobs due to mandatory shutdowns, have had to take unpaid furloughs due to loss of business revenues, and others have had to stay home to care for children that have been forced out of schools and daycares with nowhere to go. There are also those that have had to take unpaid days off to care for ill loved-ones that have been affected by the pandemic.

If you or your family haven’t had to suffer a great financial loss, consider yourselves lucky; however, now is a great time to get your financial house in order in the event that you are faced with a financial crisis in the future. Please follow the link below to a publication created by FEMA with some great information to ensure that you are on the right path to a sound financial future and will not be caught off guard in the event of an emergency.
