Planning for financial stability.
For people with modest means or living in poverty, financial planning takes a back seat to immediate, emergency needs like food and housing. People and families living paycheck to paycheck can be thrown into financial crisis by relatively minor financial setbacks like unexpected expenses or a reduction in income. Financial counselors help clients through the financial crisis and coach them to long-term financial stability.
