Helping residents achieve financial security is an important part of our approach to building strong, vibrant communities. Financial Opportunity Centers (FOC) offer resources to give residents confidence their lives will improve, their incomes will rise, and their job prospects will widen.
One-on-One Financial Coaching
We’ve learned that integrated or “bundled” services lead to concrete gains in net income and job retention. Research shows that FOC clients who take advantage of combined services are 50 percent more likely to land a well-paying job than people receiving employment services alone. And long-term job retention—holding a job for a year or more—almost doubles when financial coaching reinforces the work of employment counseling.
