Senior Cents: Provide money management assistance to seniors and people with disabilities
Skylands RSVP & Volunteer Resource Center sponsored by NORWESCAP
The Senior Cents Program is a volunteer driven program that provides money management assistance to seniors and individuals with disabilities throughout Morris County. Adults in the program have a physical or mental impairment that limits the ability to manage the daily household finances such as opening mail, paying bills, and balancing the checkbook, among other tasks. Clients are matched with a trained volunteer who assists with these tasks twice a month. Participants in this program maintain control over all decisions regarding their funds and financial plans. Volunteers do not assist with debt management or credit counseling.
Volunteers for this program are responsible, patient, compassionate individuals who have excellent budgeting, organizational and advocacy skills. After being matched with a client, they provide visits to the client's home twice a month or depending on the client's needs and the flexibility of the volunteer. The program's volunteers provide an invaluable service by utilizing their skills to enable individuals to remain independent in the community.
