Financial Empowerment

The Path to Financial Empowerment

Individuals want to be financially included and empowered. We view this as a process that can be customized for people with disabilities and integrated into disability and other human services.

Financial empowerment is the ability and confidence of individuals and communities to make positive financial decisions that promote their long-term financial stability and financial well-being.
