  • increasing credit score
  • available banking products

The FEPWC currently has five partners including REACH of Washington County, Washington County Community Action Council, Lasting Change Recovery Solutions for Women (formerly The W House), Hagerstown Housing Authority, and United Way of Washington County, MD.
