Financial Coaching & Counseling Services

You have the power to take control of your finances, and we have the resources to help you.

The Cuyahoga EITC Coalition has teamed up with several partners to offer you an array of financially based services including money management, home ownership, and personalized one-on-one planning with a seasoned financial professional. 

When it comes to personal finances, planning makes the difference. When you set goals and structure your budget, you can avoid the pitfalls of debts and missed payments, and instead chart a course to major milestones, like buying a home or retiring.

Our financial coaches and counselors can help look at your financial history, your current situation, what your biggest stressors are, and where you’d like to be in the next 5 to 10 years. Together, we’ll help you come up with a plan that maximizes your resources and gives you the potential to reach your goals.
