Family Financial Planning Initiative

Providing Families with the Tools for Financial Success


The Financial Planning Association of Maryland (FPA of MD) and Junior Achievement of Central Maryland have partnered to create the Family Planning Initiative, which connects families in need with financial planners willing to provide their services at no cost.
