HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
For those who choose to attend one-on-one financial coaching services, the financial coach will work with you to review your current financial status, understand your credit score, identify issues, and prioritize action steps to set short- and long-term financial goals and develop a household budget.
Clients can also choose to participate in various group financial workshops on topics such as buying a home, credit and debit cards, debt consolidation, and more.
