Join Save First Financial Wellness at Catholic Charities as a Volunteer Financial Coach!

The Save First Coaching Program of Catholic Charities helps empower adults to make positive financial choices, enabling them to live securely in the present and plan for the future. The Coaching Program uses community volunteers to commit to supporting, guiding, and being an ally to adults who seek additional assistance to maximize their potential. By becoming part of the social network of community members who care about these individuals and families, a financial coach can partner with their client to develop and reach positive goals such as budgeting, eliminating debt, and saving for the future. Please call Katie at (503)688-2575 to attend our next training!
