The way you spend, save, borrow and budget determines how you manage your money. The budgeting and money management program is designed to help individuals and families take the necessary steps to achieve financial goals and set a budget. Our trained counselors will offer options and suggestions that allow you to use your money in the best way possible. Do you need Budgeting & Money Management assistance?
