Participants also will receive a copy of their credit report, learn how to read the report and learn how to overcome any credit problems they may find and correct possible errors.
Classes are offered by the Central Minnesota Housing Partnership. Home Stretch will be offered Sept. 9, 16 and 23 at Aitkin High School. For more information, contact community education at (218) 927-2115.
