What We Do
We’re here to help you reach your financial goals.
- Increased goal attainment
- Better money management skills
- Improved savings, debt levels, and credit scores
- More financial confidence
A coach can provide a much-needed boost along with the flexibility to change strategies as your financial situation changes. Financial coaching focuses on ongoing behavior change, executive attention and goal setting, and goal monitoring.
Resource counseling provides opportunities to get connected to the many great programs and agencies available in your community. People who receive resource counseling are better able to:
- Locate resources that match their needs and eligibility
- Fill out applications and navigate online tools
- Network within their local community
- Set and attain goals to increase wellbeing
A resource counselor helps you recognize the huge role community plays in shaping your identity. By working with a resource counselor, you can come to see your local community as asset and learn how to utilize the services it offers effectively.
Credit coaching, like financial coaching, focuses on ongoing behavior change and goal setting. However, credit coaching is much more specialized, focusing specifically on establishing credit building habits that will offer long-term benefits. People who receive credit coaching demonstrate:
- Improved debt management and credit scores
- Better understanding of loan terms
- Increased ability to repay borrowed money
- More financial confidence
No matter what your past or present circumstances are, a credit coach can help you eliminate debt, reduce financial strain, and support you in reaching your credit building goals.
Benefits planning helps people be more informed about, and better prepared for, the potential impact work will have on their benefits. Working with a benefits planner will:
- Educate you about how work can impact benefits
- Empower you to work to your potential, instead of limiting your earnings
- Inform you about Social Security work incentives and other programs that can help pay for items
- Reduce your uncertainty
A benefit planner can also help you explore and leverage work incentives as well as help you develop a plan to ease your transition to work. Benefits planning is a powerful tool that empowers you to work to your potential, at every step in life.
