Jackie, a single mom of four, had never had a savings account. Wendy was so far behind in paying her bills that she kept them, unopened, in a drawer. Tina owed money to the IRS. From Budget Buddies, they found support for solving these and many other financial issues.
Budget Buddies helps low-income women become more economically self-sufficient and transform their lives by teaching them core money-management skills and pairing them with personal financial coaches.
Since launching Budget Buddies in 2010, we have implemented 35 customized programs in partnership with 19 community agencies and trained 266 coaches to mentor more than 375 low-income women.
New Programs Starting Soon: Volunteers Needed
You do not have to be a financial wizard to be a coach. All you need is the desire to help someone in your community make the most of the money she has.
As a volunteer coach, you’ll provide ongoing, one-to-one support for your client – and we’ll support you in that effort.
