Project Money is a no-cost financial coaching empowerment program open to residents of the greater Chicago region. The program, which spans three months, encourages its members to develop a positive and healthy relationship with their money. Members enjoy personalized sessions with a trained financial coach, financial education workshops, and a supportive community of like-minded individuals.
“Before I joined Project Money I ignored my debt, bills and even my personal goals because of the pressure and my lack of money management skills. Now I face them with great understanding confidence and optimism.”
- Jayson Lawrence, 2017 Project Money member
