Patrons of the West End Branch Library gained valuable knowledge on how to check their finances and improve their credit score during a program held October 3.

Kimberly Callines, housing counselor, and Gilberto Herrera, program manager, both from the Birmingham Urban League, Inc., presented a free credit review workshop.

The Birmingham Urban League is dedicated to empowering the community through three core programs: housing, workforce development, and GED. The mission of the Birmingham Urban League is to assist all racial and ethnic groups, particularly African Americans and the urban poor, in achieving social and economic equality. One of the ways the organization accomplishes its mission is by hosting financial literacy programs, such as the credit review workshop held at the West End Library, in Birmingham's 99 communities.

The Birmingham Urban League wants to encourage, empower, and educate those who desire to create the life they want to live. The agency's goal is to educate, giving the public resources and steps based on each individual circumstance.
