What is Financial Capability?

Whether you are planning to purchase a home, save for educational expenses, or start a small business — good money management is an important first step. Financial capability helps to put you on the path to a sustainable financial future.

We promote and support an approach that combines financial education (to share basic skills and knowledge), financial counseling (to resolve specific issues and challenges in the short term) and financial coaching (to encourage behavior change and achieve positive and sustainable long-term outcomes).

Our multi-faceted financial capability program is making strides in encouraging long-term shifts in attitudes and behaviors, raising awareness about financial capability across sectors, and making a positive, widespread impact on community development.

We provide support to a network of more than 80 NeighborWorks organizations that offer financial capability services, including financial education, financial coaching, volunteer income tax assistance and individual development accounts.
