Financial Counseling & Coaching Service
According to a recent Needs Assessment of New York State Veterans, support for families in financial distress was perceived as inadequate. In addition, almost 40% of respondents to a recent National Military Family Association survey reported a recent financial setback due to significant life events. Half believe Congress and/or DoD should provide more financial education to service members and their families.
Veterans Outreach Center assists veterans and families to manage their finances and to develop individualized plans to reach their goals. Financial literacy, education and assistance accessing community resources are available.
Come learn about budgeting and financial topics over your lunch hour. These short, timely user-friendly training sessions are designed for everyone to develop or learn new skills to understand and improve your financial future. These sessions are free to all Vets, families, and employees of the Veterans Outreach Center. All sessions will be held in the MVP Conference Room, here at the Veterans Outreach Center. Register online or by calling Bob Gregoire, 585 295-7841.
