LEARN HOW TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS WITH YOUR MONEY
Gaining control of your money gives you choices to decide your future.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:
We sum up what we do with three words: Educate, Coach, Connect.
1. Educate:
Through group education sessions, your Financial Wellbeing Coach will share information that will support changes in financial habits and improve overall financial stability.
2. Coach:
Through individual coaching sessions, a Financial Wellbeing Coach will give you opportunities to practice what you’ve learned in the group sessions. The coach will share how you can improve your money management, guide you through the steps of your financial journey and then continue to support you as you do it on your own. 
In addition to individual coaching sessions, we offer small group coaching sessions for people who want additional practice and/or go deeper into a specific topic. These sessions are about skill building on topics covered in group education and provide you with additional opportunities to gain knowledge on a topic. 
3. Connect:
As you work with your Financial Wellbeing Coach, there will be times you will need or want more or different resources, information, introduction to a bank or any number of connections to help outside of Operation HOPE. Your coach will connect you to what you need as a part of their relationship with you.
ADDITIONAL SERVICES INCLUDE:
Homeownership
Small Business Development
Disaster Prevention and Recovery
More information on these services can be viewed on our website: https://operationhope.org/how-we-help/.
