Money Management Program Volunteer
ELDER CARE SERVICES OF DEKALB COUNTY INC
The Illinois Volunteer Money Management Program is a sponsored program through the Illinois Department on Aging. The program connects seniors and some younger adults with disabilities to volunteers who will meet with clients to assist them in managing their finances.
Physical or cognitive disabilities or a history of financial exploitation leaves individuals at risk for financial crisis. The volunteers' duties are to assist these individuals with keeping an accurate account of their finances, helping them write checks or set up automatic payments for bills, intervene with creditors, save for large purchases, and other similar tasks.
Volunteers will be extensively trained to assist our clients and will need to pass a background check.
In addition to serving the clients directly, some volunteers may wish to participate in the monitoring program to oversee the other volunteers' activities to ensure accuracy and protect against exploitation.
Please contact Lee Scott, Money Management Coordinator, for further details at 815-758-6550.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
