Money Management Volunteer Program
DIABLO VALLEY FOUNDATION FOR THE AGING
Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging (DVFA) Money Management Volunteer Program (MMVP) promotes and prolongs independent living for seniors on a limited income, who are at risk because of their inability to manage their own finances and who have no support system available to help them. Volunteers provide assistance at no charge in a way that preserves the client’s dignity and privacy and offers safeguards and oversight. Screened and trained, Volunteers serve clients who are still in charge of their own financial affairs but need some help organizing their bills and checkbooks, setting up a budget, and managing their daily financial matters.
Volunteers will be screened, background checked, and trained. Once matched with a senior, volunteers will connect on a regular basis as established by DVFA, the Volunteer and the Senior. Clearly, with COVID19 active and rampant, the visits will rely much more via our TelAssure programmatical efforts until such time that in-person visits can be made. If possible, use of digital technologies can be implemented to establish regular, visual connections. Third-party monitoring provides independent review of each Volunteer client’s financial activity which insures checks and balances for the client, volunteer, and DVFA.
Seeking volunteers with financial education and/or experience, patience, flexibility, and organizational skills. Willingness to undergo background check and participate in an ongoing project as well as travel throughout Central Contra Costa County.

Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging's mission is to provide compassionate services to help seniors maintain independence, dignity and peace of mind.
Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging is a not-for-profit corporation providing community service to seniors in Contra Costa County since 1975. Founded by a group of community leaders including Dean S. Lesher, former publisher of the Contra Costa Times, and Katharine M. Grant, a social worker, the Foundation is committed to providing vital services to aging persons who are at risk because they are alone, isolated, pressed by financial problems, or are confused. The focus of our organization is to prevent inappropriate institutionalization of elders by providing the necessary support to maintain them in the community. Comprised of dedicated professionals and volunteers, we enable older adults to live with as much independence and freedom as possible.
