Financial Opportunity Corps 2014 Detroit
Innovative VISTA led project designed to develop and maintain a local Financial Coaching Program that will provide long-term and episodic financial coaching to under resourced communities. The Financial Opportunity Corps will work within low income communities to form better money habits, ultimately increasing financial knowledge, confidence and sustainability. VISTAs will engage volunteers to support coaching provision and long-term program sustainability. VISTAs will also recruit and engage members of the community as client beneficiaries of the financial coaching program.
