The MoneyWork$ Program
MoneyWork$ is an intensive 13 week"financial makeover" program through which families gain a greater understanding of their current financial situation, improve their financial management practices and develop a personal roadmap to self-sufficiency. The program increases participants’ understanding of the US financial system and ultimately aims at helping them achieve the behavioral change they have determined is needed to get out of debt, retain more of their assets and achieve their financial goals. Besides weekly class sessions, participants engage in support group meetings and receive one-on-one financial counseling. The program is provided in English and in Spanish.
