You will meet with a volunteer financial coach to discuss and outline your financial goals and how to achieve them. Such goals can include budgeting, improving credit, and working towards building assets. Together, with your coach, you will determine progress toward your financial goal(s) and how often coaching is needed.
The purpose of financial coaching is not to provide financial literacy or specific advice in finances or employment, but guide and support you in setting goals and taking action to seek needed assistance regarding finances or employment. Financial coaching sessions are structured to empower you to find your own solutions and have an accountability partner as you work toward long-term financial goals.
WRC partners with the financial coaching program through Women’s Way to train and equip volunteer financial coaches to assist clients in setting realistic financial goals and working towards those goals. This program utilizes a coaching model to empower and change women’s relationship with finances and improve their financial capability.
