The Living Room



The Living Room is seeking a volunteer who able to assist our participants with financial planning assistance.

This volunteer will assist the participant depending on the participant's needs, volunteers will help to establish financial goals, get financially organized, improve credit, reduce debt, and set up a livable budget. The coach's main role is to provide the impetus and accountability in setting accomplishable goals, as well as providing the resources necessary to reach them.

Volunteers will need to be organized, resourceful, and understanding of clients' various needs and life experiences. While it does help when our volunteers have experience with financial planning and budgeting, we do not deny volunteers for a lack of credentials. It's just as important that our volunteers be empathetic and resourceful in approaching the unique issues that each client will bring in. Our best volunteers are able to deal equally well with numbers, people, and new challenges.

Financial Coaching is a clientdriven process in which individuals and families work to reach personalized goals related to improving their financial wellbeing. Volunteers offer tools and resources, encouragement, and monitoring throughout the process of selfdirected behavior change.
