WOMEN’S WAY Financial Coaching Pilot Featured in Philadelphia Citizen
“Women’s Way is set to expand a financial coaching program that has already helped 250 low- and moderate-income women save $115,000. Could it be the key to getting them through the pandemic?”
A recent Philadelphia Citizen article highlighted WOMEN’S WAY’s pilot program, which integrates financial coaching services into early care and education centers in the Philadelphia region.
This idea for this pilot emerged out of the Women’s Economic Security Initiative (WESI), a WOMEN’S WAY’s grantmaking program aimed at improving the financial well-being of women and their families in the Philadelphia region. WESI uses a collaborative approach, bringing together stakeholders from the nonprofit, public and private sectors to devise and test solutions that seek to end poverty, rather than just manage it.
