### Financial Coaching
-Many families in poverty lack the training and perspective needed to manage money effectively. As a result, they are living paycheck to paycheck, are struggling with debt, and have no savings. A significant number are victims of predatory lending practices. Financial coaching equips families with the knowledge and perspective they need to achieve financial sustainability.

A significant number are also victims of predatory lending practices. Financial coaching equips families with the knowledge and perspective they need to achieve financial sustainability.
Coaches help their families take control of their finances and maintain a balanced budget. Neighborhood partners and volunteers may also assist with this effort. For example, a coach may accompany a family to a budgeting class offered at a neighborhood church, or teach the family how to use an on-line resource such as [mint.com](http://mint.com). Coaches also help their families take a hard look at monthly expenses to determine what can be reduced or eliminated. As part of this process, families learn to save money as well as measure and appreciate savings. They learn to shop for deals and to coupon, take group shopping trips together, utilize carpools and public transportation, cook-in instead of dine-out, reduce energy costs, and capitalize on prudent downsizing opportunities.
