Financial Futures Programs

What we do

We offer financial skill building to residents of Addison, Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties. If your priority is learning more about money management, building your financial stability, or increasing household assets, Financial Futures can help! 

View our services:

Personal Finance: small classes and one-on-one coaching to help you develop strategies for budgeting, saving money, paying down debt, building credit, and setting and achieving financial goals.

Micro Business Development Program: one-on-one counseling, technical assistance, classes, and workshops to help you start, sustain, and expand your small business.

The Financial Futures Program is committed to offering services to members of the New American community. To request our services in Arabic, French, Nepali, MaiMai, Somali, Spanish, or Swahili, contact the Office of Racial Equity and Community Inclusion. 

Financial Futures Intake Form


All services are free to those who meet our income eligibility qualifications (must make less than number indicated on chart for your household size to qualify for free services). See the chart below for program specific requirements:


A household refers to all members that you live with (aside from roommates). When referring to how many live in your household, include yourself. Your significant other, child, and parents are a part of your household; your roommates or friends are not.


We would like to thank the Community Service Block Grant, Wells Fargo, M&T Bank, People’s United Bank, NEFCU, Janes Trust, and the Vermont Women’s Fund for their continued support of Financial Futures Programs!
