One-on-One Financial Coaching

Meeting financial goals can be challenging and even more so when done on your own. With individualized support low-to-moderate income adults are more likely to adopt the skills needed to manage their finances and meet their self-identified goals.  The Financial Coaching program of the CT Money School provides volunteer financial coaches across the state who are ready to help you meet your financial goals free of charge. CMS Financial Coaches foster the process of behavior change by providing support in the development of concrete action plans, accountability toward meeting the objectives in the plan, and additional coaching along the way.  One-on-one financial coaching is a three month virtual engagement however, participants may continue for another 3 months if they choose.

Statewide residents come to us with challenges impacting their financial well being, such as:

  • Poor Budgeting Skills
  • Inability to Save
  • Overwhelming Debt
  • Poor Credit History
  • Major Life Changes
  • Loss of Job/Reduction in Income
  • Finding a better way to pay for college and reduce future debt

Through our partnerships in the community CMS Financial Coaches can connect participants to additional programs and services such as: benefits access, free tax preparation, and homeownership counseling, etc.
