TD Charitable Foundation Honors Jackson Heights Non-Profit

The following local non-profit received a grant from TD Bank's Charitable Foundation.

Chhaya Community Development Corporation

Saathi is an integrated program that combines multiple empowerment tools from English language classes, financial education workshops, to tangible financial products such as an informal Peer Lending Circle to help low-to-moderate income South Asian immigrant women become independent and empowered citizens of our community. By helping these women communicate in English, teaching them essential skills in budgeting, building credit, savings, and investment, the program aims to provide the resources that will help prevent crisis at home and improve sense of self. The program will accomplish these goals through a combination of group workshops, one-on-one counseling, peer group meetings, and provision of financial products.
