A unique opportunity to change a senior’s life...

managing our money well enables us to be stress free, independent and safe from exploitation

Posted

The Money Management Program was developed to assist low-income elders who have difficulty writing checks, balancing their checkbooks and managing their money. Some of these elders may be homebound, visually impaired, confused, and without family nearby to help. The day-to-day operation of the program is managed by Coastline with the purpose being to provide assistance to elders who might be at risk of losing their independence due to their inability to pay basic rent, food, and utility bills on time. A trained, insured, supervised volunteer is carefully matched one-on-one with an elder needing assistance. The volunteer goes to the elder’s home at least monthly to help keep track of income and expenses.

Volunteers are urgently needed to provide this unique, essential service, a lifeline for many low income seniors.
