GROWING MONEY offers one-on-one financial coaching
We provide free financial coaching to program participants. We'll help individuals define their financial goals, and support them in taking steps to reach those goals. Areas supported include managing spending, budgeting, getting credit under control, obtaining, understanding and fixing errors on credit reports, saving and investing, opening bank accounts, dealing with creditors and predatory lenders, organizing financial papers, and so forth.
We work closely with other financial providers, and usually can refer you to someone who can help you, if we can't. Meetings are by appointment, and generally, we encourage attendance at one of our classes as a preparation for one-on-one support.
