Helping individuals and families earn economic independence through financial education, development services and low-cost banking options.

RedDough

Prosperity Connection has launched its very first RedDough® Money Center, a small-dollar loan store that also offers check cashing and other alternative banking services. RedDough provides an affordable alternative to traditional check cashing and payday lending, while presenting a true pathway to economic independence. In addition, its mission is to give back to the communities it serves by providing resources to support financial education, scholarships and various social services.

At Prosperity Connection, we believe in the power of education and the transformational results it can bring to the community. So, in working with our social service and community partners, we created the Excel Center®, a destination point and trusted source for free financial literacy, life skills education, professional development, benefits analysis, and much more. The Excel Center offers a platform to promote and encourage self-sufficiency and financial dignity through the power of education and development services.
