Our Initiatives


United Way of West Central Connecticut’s free Financial Coaching Program can help you get control of your finances!

We will match you with a trained volunteer who will help you develop a better understanding of your financial situation. In one-on-one sessions with your coach, you will learn how to effectively manage your income, spending, debt and savings. Your financial coach will not budget your money for you, but will coach you through the process of doing it yourself. This way, the spending plan you create will fit your personal wants, needs and goals.

Creating a realistic spending plan is never easy. It requires a degree of self-discipline and sacrifice in the short-term, in order to reach your long-term financial goals. However, this process can be easier when you have someone knowledgeable, with your best interests at heart, helping you along the way.
