Financial Counseling & Coaching
For people living in poverty, it can feel like there’s no way out. Our financial counseling services can help.
When you’re living paycheck to paycheck, there is a limited amount of income available to pay bills (i.e. rent, hospital bills, medication expenses, child-care, etc.), put into savings, or to get food on the table. An unexpected expense or a small reduction in income can quickly become a financial crisis.
