We are a team of half-time AmeriCorps members aiming to increase the rate of financial literacy in the greater community, providing outreach, assessments, and advice at two major Tri-town Community Action Agencies in Rhode Island (North Providence and South County in Wakefield). Through our efforts, members in the community will strengthen their confidence level and ability to be financially self-reliant.
Clients are able to increase their financial knowledge through consultation sessions that aim to help clients plan and manage their overall finances. Clients will improve their financial standing by creating a monthly budget, establishing a positive banking experience and saving for future expenses. The goal is to have more money left in their pockets at the end of the month.
