An old Chinese proverb says, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
Financial empowerment provides the strategies and resources families need to build a stronger financial future. Families with strong financial foundations have the ability to create the nurturing environments that help children develop into productive citizens. Each generation desires to pass on a better legacy to the next. Bank On Virginia Beach helps families create stronger relationships with trusted financial institutions and to avoid high cost alternatives so they achieve their own personal financial goals. Bank On Virginia Beach is part of the Mayor’s Action Challenge for 500 Families Financially Fit for the Future. Bank On Virginia Beach brings together partners like financial institutions, community organizations, and the City of Virginia Beach to offer empowerment resources to develop knowledge and skills to change financial behavior for a lifetime.
