Learning to understand the difference between a need and a want – and how to manage a budget around those differences – is a critical part to our program and our client success. When you adopt a family at Christmas, you’re given a list of 3 items for each family member: A want, a need, and a read. You can remove the stress parents feel around the holidays to give their children special memories and help them get ahead on their budget.
