Other Projects:
There are many people who are unemployed or are simply unable to work due to mental / physical impairment. These people usually rely solely on government financial support programs to survive. Often, they feel trapped and have no control over their lives. They also have the misperception that honing their personal money management skills will have little positive impact in their lives.

EFLS provides “Making Ends Meet” to help address and improve these issues. Working with local food banks and other crisis intervention agencies, EFLS can provide a course that blends class room time with one on one consultation to focus clients on individual goals that will ultimately improve their quality of life.

This course can also be used in addiction recovery programs that allow clients the time they need to effectively address their issues.
