What We Offer

Simple

Money & ME is written to be simple and easy to understand.  The workbook has many graphics to engage with the participants.  The PowerPoints have photos and animations on each slide that correspond with the workbooks.  The first step is finding income and spending information and one place to organize the information.

Practical

The Money & ME curriculum focuses on simple concepts including menu planning, tips for getting laundry organized, price per ounce, savings for emergencies, and a plan to pay off money owed. The cash envelope system is taught and envelopes are included in the money kit. This money management guide focuses on life skills that impact all areas of a person’s life.

Effective

Money & ME focuses on behavior change to be effective. Participants discuss various habits and are given strategies for changing habits. Many have stopped smoking or gambling as a result of seeing how much it is costing each year. Others learn how to be better shoppers and how emotions are related to spending money. People that stop spending $1.00 a day on a drink or snack can save $365 every year!
