Financial Education & Coaching

-A A +A

Most of us experience tough financial situations in life.  Maybe you are making less at your new job... Maybe you’ve lost a loved one who helped support your household... Maybe you keep facing bills you just don’t seem to have enough money to pay.  If you are struggling to make your budget work, you desire to eliminate debt, or you have other questions on how to begin experiencing strong financial stability, we can help.

Program staff facilitate workshops and provide individualized financial coaching for participants seeking to make financial decisions that will lead to a healthier financial future.  Our workshops and coaching services are offered in locations throughout South Central Pennsylvania that are convenient for the participants.  Locations may include the program office, churches, participant’s homes and other mutually agreed upon locations.

There are no fees for the program’s workshops and individualized financial coaching services.  To achieve successful results participants are expected to communicate honestly, openly and fully.  In addition, they must be willing to commit to making positive changes to improve their financial future and overall quality of life.
