Meet a Saver

In 2004, Tonya Shelton was facing financial ruin. Barely making more than minimum wage and having lost her home to an unexpected family crisis, Shelton and her family were forced to live in a rundown hotel. Their future seemed bleak. However, armed with a burning desire to make life better for her family, help from Purdue Extension’s Making Your Money Work financial literacy program, the assistance of a Iocal America Saves campaign Indy Saves, and a savings plan, she began her journey to becoming a good steward over the money she did have. Read her story.
