Talbert House gets nearly $6k for literacy program

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

First Financial Bank has gifted Talbert House $5,700 to organize a learning center and establish a financial literacy program for the residents of Parkway Center. 

The grant will be used to purchase three computers and six classroom-style tables.  In addition, First Financial Bank will provide a detailed curriculum and volunteer support to facilitate financial literacy workshops.  

"Financial education is a key component of First Financial's community development approach and we're proud to partner with Talbert House to help local residents build the foundation needed to help them obtain their financial goals," said Adrian Breen, First Financial's Greater Cincinnati/Kentucky regional president. "We hope the program will open new doors for local residents and help them build a better future."

Parkway Center provides transitional housing for homeless men.  Last year the center served over 330 men, many who are Veterans. Parkway Center provides meals, employment and substance abuse services, and assistance for residents to transition back into their communities and find safe, affordable housing. 

The First Financial Bank vision is to increase financial literacy for all ages and provide educational opportunities specifically for the economically disadvantaged.  This project accomplishes their vision and supports the Talbert House mission of improving social behavior and enhancing personal recovery and growth.

Talbert House acknowledged First Financial's gift and support of this project at the site of the proposed learning center, which is now under renovation. 

"We appreciate this opportunity to collaborate with First Financial Bank.  This program will help our residents meet their goal of self-sufficiency.  We thank First Financial Bank for providing the tools and education needed for these men to accomplish financial stability," said Neil Tilow, President and CEO of Talbert House.
