We provide financial education to help our clients lead independent lives. People experiencing poverty are often savvy with their income, understanding how to stretch their limited dollars to meet the needs of their family. These individuals, however, have usually not had the opportunity to save for their futures and to learn about budgeting, banking, and credit. And if someone has been in an abusive relationship, they have often been denied control over their own finances and might have had their credit ruined by their partner.
In all of our services, we partner with financial institutions to provide financial independence programming that is empowering for our clients, recognizes the skills they have developed, and provides information to help people accomplish their short and long-term goals. When possible, we also offer matched savings programs to incentivize and reward planning for the future.
