There’s more hope: the second Raleigh HOPE Inside center is now open in North Raleigh on New Hope Road. The center provides complimentary financial education to young people and low-income families. A branch of national organization Operation HOPE, visitors to the center are assigned a financial wellbeing coach who offers advice on myriad topics, including money management and tactics to raise your credit score. These nonprofit private bankers work to maintain financial dignity and teach financial literacy throughout the community. Want to get involved? The membership organization relies on its members, local corporations as well as individuals, looking to pay it forward.   Catherine Currin
