Willie O. Smith

Board Member

After serving the people of Michigan at the Department of Corrections for 41 years, the new chapter for Willie is pursuing his passion for helping others achieve financial success. Now a financial counselor for New Hope Baptist Church, his transformative guidance teaches people how to live on less than they earn, save for their goals instead of going into debt, and avoid the trap of predatory debt like payday loans. His zeal for Project GREEN stems from the joy he gets from seeing community members thrive financially and build a lasting legacy.
