HomesteadCS' Executive Director, Marie Morse is on the State’s Asset and Opportunities Network steering committee. Marie is excited to be on this committee to bring good things back to our surrounding ten counties. 

The Network is a statewide coalition that works to advance the National A&O Network financial security framework to increase one's assets. Linking low-wealth Hoosiers to financial empowerment organizations and financial literacy workshops will help aid them in the first steps toward understanding the importance of maximizing income, managing and saving money, and investing in long-term goals.
