Financial stability starts with financial knowledge. This is why we are the only non-profit that provides free financial coach training to case managers in Maricopa County.
667,000 people live at or below the poverty line. Many Arizonans struggle with the two key factors to strong financial stability: creating and following a budget, and paying off debts. When a family is financially stable, it improves the well-being, health, and future for parents and kids.
We are proud to be the only non-profit that provides free financial coach training to case managers in Maricopa County.
Thanks to our donors, we train case managers to become financial coaches. Case managers are already working with families everyday, and this intensive 4-week program gives them the knowledge they need to easily integrate financial coaching into their daily work with clients. Coaches are trained on how to guide their clients towards long-term financial stability by way of money management, household budgeting, credit repair, personal financial priority setting, and more.
