Dwelling Place’s Mindful Money Program, which launched this summer, is a resident focused financial capabilities program featuring relationship building and empowerment. This program provides interactive online money management workshops and brings together residents for group and one-on-one coaching sessions with trained financial coaches to learn alongside one another. We’re excited to partner with Dondreá Brown and 1428 Financial Wellness to bring the online workshop component to our program. Our volunteer Financial Coaches, Tammy Karas and Grace Thuo, have been doing a fantastic job leading our group and one-on-one coaching sessions. Residents and coaches will be meeting twice monthly to share tips, tricks and encouragement with one another throughout their program journey.
