The Global Leader for Financial Dignity

HOPE Social Media


Home/Programs & Services/ HOPE Inside/ Chattanooga - First Tennesee

HOPE Inside is a unique empowerment model that brings free financial dignity programming to underserved communities. Clients are counseled on the language of money and work with an Operation HOPE Financial Wellbeing Coach to transform established financial mindsets and develop customized action plans around building their own businesses, raising their credit scores, buying homes, or simply making better decisions with the money they have.

Programs include credit and money management, homeownership preparedness, and small business entrepreneurship. Every office holds consumer credit counseling certification, CFPB, FDIC, U.S. SBA, EITC, HUD, and FEMA applications and partnerships. Through the HOPE 700 Credit Score Communities initiative, the focus on raising client credit scores to 700, and thereby bringing financial uplift to communities is at the foundation of all HOPE Inside programming

First Tennessee has sponsored Operation HOPE to provide free homeownership and financial literacy program that will help you take control of your money.

CREDIT AND MONEY MANAGEMENT

When you join a HOPE-700-Credit-Score-Communities group you will take classes with other individuals who are looking to improve their FICO scores. These classes will help you move your credit score to the 700+ range. You will learn the basics of making a budget, how to read a credit report, and what can be done to correct errors that may negatively affect your credit rating. The workshop, led by a financial wellbeing coach, will also cover your rights as a consumer, and how to make the most of them.

  • Budgeting
  • Paying off debt and saving money
  • Understanding your FICO score
  • How to read your credit report
