Financial Wellness Program

This innovative new program helps clients to improve their overall financial wellness through the use of goal-based education, resource development, and written and experiential activities. Each client will work with a Certified Financial Social Worker to create an individual plan that will help them meet their wellness goals.

Program Information

The program is curriculum-based and can last anywhere from 8-15 weeks depending on the goals and needs of the individual. Each participant will be provided with the curriculum and educational information by mail. We are able to help with financial literacy education, creating spending and savings plans, and addressing barriers to financial wellness.
