I had the honor of working closely with this organization and was their "Executive on Loan" for a little over 2 years. The Executive Director, Ronni Cohen, is one of the most hard working, caring, genuine, and professional women whom I have had the pleasure of meeting. I am thankful to be able to call her a dear friend. Her staff shares the same passion, enthusiasm, and dedication as Ronni. Their signature program, From Purses to Portfolios, has grown to attract thousands of like-minded women (and men) to take control of their financial lives. Because of this program, they now have a more financially stable future; even in these trying economic times. The community who gets involved in their programs have the tools and resources to become more savvy in regard to their personal finances. DFLI offers hundreds of FREE Financial Education classes which vary greatly and touch on many topics. The diversity of their classes have helped many thousands of people, whether they are in the low to moderate income bracket, middle income, or upper income category. They teach everything; basic budgeting and savings classes, estate planning, investing, couponing, and the list goes on and on. DFLI holds events that are so well put together, organized, and cover various topics that are relevant to today's current economic conditions. They have Money Clubs which bring people together to share success stories and ideas on how to save money, find deals, buckle down on nonessential shopping, and setting realistic savings goals as a group. These groups encourage one another to make a plan and inspires them to stick to it. I cannot say enough about this AMAZING organization who helps people improve their lives and gives them the support that they need to do so. DFLI will forever be near and dear to my heart!
