What We Do

Family Financial Stability Initiative

The Family Financial Stability Initiative helps Individuals living in Hartford over the age of 18 with incomes less than $50,000 per year effectively manage their finances and achieve financial goals.

Through free one-on-one coaching and financial education classes, participants learn how to create a budget, understand and improve credit scores, reduce debt, define their financial goals, and develop a plan to reach their goals. Participants may also be eligible to open a Matched Savings Account to begin building their savings to purchase assets (e.g., a car, school uniforms for their children, a computer and much more). A match is available for qualified Hartford women, helping them achieve their goals sooner.

This initiative is part of The Village’s Institute for Successful Families and the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund.

Access Services
