::Spanish Publications Now Available To Service Providers::


Two of our popular money management guides are now available in Spanish.

If you provide financial education services to Spanish-speaking populations, we encourage you to explore Your Money Matters: An Adult’s Guide to Personal Finances, designed for workplace education and Your Money Matters: Your Money, Your Way, created to help adults with fewer financial resources handle their money, even if they’ve already reached a financial crisis point.

Print copies may be available upon request, depending on inventory level. If you’re hosting an educational workshop or event, contact Melissa Neal, Educational Services Manager, at 405.234.4253 or mneal@ocap.org to discuss your specific needs.
