These exciting two days are offered by the Financial Stability Partnership of Northern Nevada (FSPNN), a community collaborative administered by the United Way of Northern Nevada. Since 2008, the FSPNN has been raising public awareness and supporting the work of community groups who provide financial education and asset building.
