  • Connection to education partners, legal partners, veteran benefits, and more

We’re committed to teaching our veterans how “to do money” and achieve a level of financial wellness that allows them to live a financially flexible life. The program focuses on building money management skills through financial education teaching personal finance concepts, financial coaching offering guidance and support, and credit counseling teaching the basics of credit management. We recognize that a contributing factor to a person’s well-being and security is the health of their finances. To support the breadth of those needs, we have partnered with several providers who work directly with veterans and their families on more aspects of managing their financial needs.

Financial Coaching:

Free financial coaching is provided through financial coach, Jonathan Helm. Support helps change behaviors to achieve personal financial goals. Liz also assists in creating budgets and provides information to better manage personal finances.

Eligibility: Veterans, Military and their Families (regardless of discharge status, era of service, or disability) and Family members. Please call Jonathan Helm at 719-309-4752 .
