Regardless of how financially secure a person may be, life circumstances can quickly alter financial well-being. Help those whose circumstances are in flux: those in transition to moving into stability. For example military personnel face deployment as part of their career.
Taking control of one’s finances often is a crucial step in helping people move towards a more stable future. We’ve tailor-made workshops for you to use with specific groups of underserved audiences, ranging from those who are being released from prison to those who are seeking adoption or building family literacy. Whether you’re working with a victim of domestic violence or someone who is grappling with addiction, you’ll find the customized resources you need.
Handling money is tough, especially when there are few assets to go around. Help empower those with limited means by giving them the information they need to build financial capability. Use these workshops to help people maximize tax refund opportunities, transition out of homelessness, or manage everyday spending.
Sometimes you just need a basic approach to the fundamentals of personal finance and money management. These workshops present financial concepts in an easy-to-understand manner so that people can build their financial capability. These workshops are holistic, broad-based, and feature many of NEFE’s most popular resources.
Employees often look to their companies for guidance and support in their financial lives. Employee benefits, retirement plans, and even just reading a pay stub can be confusing for many. Help people gain the financial workplace education they need to make informed decisions and improve their financial security.
Personal finances often are complicated by health and disability issues. Lessen the stress of those affected by challenges such as disability, disease, and injury by helping them navigate their finances. You’ll find workshops that address work accommodations, long-term and chronic issues, and support for caregivers.
Whether reaching one’s advanced years or planning for the future, people need to be prepared for the financial issues that occur later in life. Here, you’ll find workshops and resources to help people navigate retirement decisions, as well as workshops that reach out to low-income seniors. We even have a workshop for grandparents or other older adults who want to share their wisdom through youth mentoring. (More workshops coming soon)
Young people who learn money management early can avoid many of the costly mistakes that would otherwise set them back as they plan for their futures. These workshops focus on youth development, service learning, paying for college, and preparing for life after college.
Varied cultural, faith, and ethnic backgrounds often call for special consideration of individual values and attention paid to unique circumstances and challenges. Here, you’ll find material that’s been developed with diverse audiences in mind.
The effort to develop a tailored and relevant financial program for specific audiences can be daunting. Representatives from nonprofit organizations, community groups, and government entities can develop, implement, and assess tailored financial capabilities programs.
