Financial Stability

Benefits Counseling-LifePath

Ensuring individuals and families achieve financial stability.

Sometimes people need assistance with the skills necessary to support themselves and their families, especially during emergencies and life transitions. This can include the transition of moving from homelessness to a shelter or to a home or apartment. It includes access to food and clothing, jobs and English language training. Financial Stability Programs focus on food insecurity, crisis intervention, adult job and life training, and youth development.
