A Comprehensive Approach to Financial Empowerment

Clients of the Financial Advocacy Program receive individualized money-management coaching and benefits counseling from highly-trained volunteers working at community-based partner agencies throughout the five boroughs of  New York City.  Two projects—the Financial Coaching Corps and the ACES Project—use a coordinated service model that provides easy access to the program's entire range of services.

The Volunteer Difference

The Financial Advocacy Program is part of our Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP).  RSVP is a nationally-acclaimed program that enlists adults ages 55 and older to strengthen their communities by serving as volunteers.  Volunteers are representative of the communities they serve and, in many cases, reside in the very neighborhoods in which they volunteer. To find out more about RSVP, including current volunteer opportunities, click here.

Volunteers in the Financial Advocacy Program receive extensive training, are carefully screened, and make a substantial commitment to making a difference in their clients' lives.
