About

Volunteers are needed to assist isolated elders and individuals living with disabilities with monthly finances. The consumers who are referred to the program lack the support of a friend or family member who might ordinarily take on this role. Money Managers meet with their client a few times a month a month to assist that client with balancing a checkbook, paying bills and staying within a budget. Although the job title is Money Manager, volunteers are not financial advisers; the elder maintains control of his/her finances. Ongoing training and support are provided by the program manager. This is an excellent opportunity to develop positive relationships with those in need of support while promoting their safe independence in the community! Bilingual Individuals are encouraged to apply as English is not the first language for many program recipients.
